This is the kind of music that could make a bishop kick a hole in a stained-glass window. Mojo Juju sings songs that sound just like that night you can’t quite remember, in that bar you swear you weren’t at, with that girl you promise you’ve never met. This music is smooth, shiny and loaded with sin.

 

Performing tracks from her debut self?titled album, Mojo Juju will hit town this week. Mojo Juju’s live performances are mesmerising and memorable. Drawing inspiration from the jazz age, early blues and Latin American ‘Pachuco’ culture of the 1930s and 1940s, there is most definitely something dark, dirty and seductive lurking in Mojo’s music and in her live show.

 

The first single from the album Must Be Desire has already started receiving great reviews. See Mojo Juju at the Byron Community Centre Theatre on Friday.
