Reggae meets jazz and tropicália on Kiwi's second album.

Sampler

'On the Move' is the second full-length album from U.S. band Kiwi. The new set, which was produced by Jocko from Moresound and slated for release on February 22, is described in a press release as “a joyful celebration of reggae rhythms, soulful vocals, and Latin jazz-inflected harmonies”.

Kiwi was initially founded as an acoustic duo, but has has grown into an eight piece outfit with a stable core comprised of jazz and funk players in the greater New York City area.

The inspiration for the band’s sound has its origins in singer and songwriter Alex Tea’s multiple extended stays in Brazil, beginning with a trip to the ocean-side city of Fortaleza over a decade ago. And Brazilian instruments also play a large role in shaping the sound of new album. Brazilian jazz aficionados may recognize the sounds of the cuica and agogo, as well as the fishing-pole shaped berimbau.
