Switzerland, Brazil, Ghana, Zimbabwe - seven musicians with different roots and different musical backgrounds meet and then create Afrosoul, the music of EMASHIE. It is a unique mixture of traditional African drum music, funk, latin, reggae and soul. Instead of playing a normal drum kit, EMASHIE uses plenty of percussion instruments from Africa, Brasil and Cuba.
EMASHIE plays mostly own compositions, traditional African drum music and some covers, all of them arranged in the unique Afrosoul style. An art critic wrote after an EMASHIE performance: "EMASHIE lives with and from the mixture which they create with their huge collection of instruments. Although the listener gets to know the different elements of the sound, with every different track however, the combination offers you a whole new musical experience."
