the afrobeat greats of the 60’s and 70’s. Fuji, Highlife, Juju, Afrobeat, Jazz and Funk form
the foundation the band elaborate upon to create a 21st century heavy groove.

OJO are an instrumental 4 piece band based in North Dublin, Ireland. Their sound is characterized by the melodic sounds of the Sunpan played by Stephen O'Kelly. Jimbo Dowling on guitar/banjo sets the pace, while Ian Carey on Bass guitar and Conor on Cajon create the backbone. It's fast, rhythmical, high energy music. The founding members, Stephen and Jimbo, originally began as a two-piece act in 2017. They quickly lit up the Dublin music scene by appearing at local venues and thrilling audiences with their own distinct sound. The Sunpan creates an almost Caribbean like vibe, while the melodies and rhythm are drenched in traditional Irish undertones.
