About Jaspora

Music from the Tropics

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 Tropical 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!

The band consists of our amazing front woman and singer Tessa, who belts out the Soca all night while dancing up a storm; our front man Luc, who channels a year 2000’s version of Lord Kitchener, in addition to some flare on the drums; Dan our lead guitarist who burns out the crazy soca lines all night; Nat our super talented and super spooky pianist/keyboard player with her infectious latin and horn lines and Tim our man on the bass who grooves it all night long.

Jaspora have been performing in the Melbourne gig scene for 6 years as well as many local festivals, private events and major Melbourne events such as Moomba.

Other venues/events the band has played include:

Moomba 2018, Thornbury Theatre supporting Sauti Sol (AFRICA), Queen Victoria Night Markets, Latin Fiesta Laneway Festival, Young & Jacksons (CBD), The Palace Hotel Camberwell, Palermo Restaurant, Beachcomers St Kilda, The Basin Music Festival, Globe to Globe Festival, Brimbank Festival, The LuWOW, The Laundry, Blackburn Council ‘Shake at the Lake’, The Penny Black, The Vineyard, Copacabana, Baha Bar, Bar 303 and The Brunswick Hotel.

Jaspora continues to perform extensively around Melbourne in various bars, clubs, as well as private functions.
