Joel Karabo Elliott (jKe)

by Joel Elliott
(Limpopo, South Africa)

I'm a guitarist, singer-songwriter, jazz trombonist and poet blending folk, reggae, rock, roots and jazz sounds from my two homelands, Afrika and America. My music is informed primarily by my experiences in urban America and rural Afrika, and by my training in jazz, classical, african and folk music. My honest poetry tells stories and paints pictures of life’s rugged journey toward the sublime. I see it as a calling to humanity to open and up and explore, to forsake an increasingly mechanized, lonely and materialistic society. I originally hail from Indianapolis and Washington D.C., but for several years I've settled in a Pedi village in the open spaces of Limpopo province, where I became Karabo.
