Juwana Jenkins and Her All Star Mojo Band (USA/CZ)
Soul that’s Motown-inspired, Stax-fired, rock-led and Philly-bred to funky grooves that move your shoes and lift your blues! Get your favorite friends together and join the party led by Juwana Jenkins, an African-American female singer, songwriter and performer from Philadelphia who delights and uplifts audiences across the world with her unmistakable soulful lyrics, raw performances and rich delivery of her own original music, as well as classic blues, soul, gospel, and funk-influenced tunes. As a charismatic, highly dynamic vocalist, Juwana has served as a front-woman for bands, most notably, her own backing All-Star Mojo Band. Her much-acclaimed collaboration with noted harmonica player Charlie Slavik, The Blues Keeps You Alive (Charisma Records, 2012), garnered the attention of music critics and earned Jenkins the title of “Blues Queen.” Known for her trademark fiery, feel-good and energetic performances, Juwana embarked on her solo career with the debut single, Long Time. Juwana Jenkins – voc; Steve Walsh – g; Charlie Slavik – harmonica; Adam Nohavica – b; Tomáš Vokurka – dr.
