The Mojo Roots trio formulates an enticing aura of exuberance and boogie down jams by coagulating Blues, R & B, Reggae, Ska, Second Line, Funk, Soul and International Rhythms.
This dynamic trio were created to provide a musical alternative to the home grown, agriculturally provocative, party-down atmosphere of the Minnesota State Fair. By blending the familiar musical genres of each player, Mojo Roots coagulated a simmering concoction of R & B, Blues, Reggae, Ska, Second Line, & International Rhythms/Grooves. The result was an overwhelming Audience responce that culminated into the groups 1st CD project, “Prakritis Kiss”. The song list contains familar Cover Tunes, however the treatment is always Mojo Roots or as we like to say; MOJOFIED!
