clandestino playlist 2/14...my guests Shokazoba

My guests this week on Clandestino were Wendell and J Moses from Western Mass funk band Shokazoba. They've got a slew of shows coming up, as well as a brand new full length album, Congress for Sale, that will be dropping this Spring. Check their website for more details. I want to thank these fellas for stopping by with the tunes and good vibes. I definitely recommend checking out their afrobeat-inspired funk.
