Jaspora is a Soca / Calypso / Sega / Tropical Reggae band performing music from all around the Caribbean and Africa.
We bring you the smooth groovy vibes of Calypso, the high energy and that crazy dancing feeling of Soca as well as those off beats of Jamaican Reggae. We also trek to Africa to bring you Soukous, a feel good uplifting funky African genre as well as a quick paddle across the sea to Mauritius for some hip shaking Sega and Seggae music!
Pack all of this into a non-stop live show with improvisation, grooves all night, feel good times and you have the Jaspora experience!
Jaspora appeals to audiences of all ages, and guarantees a fantastic time, with everyone grooving on the dance floor!
