At the crossroads of Benin's traditional vodun (voodoo) rhythms, Caribbean styles and jazz, Jomion & The Uklos make festive, colorful music. These three blood-brothers from the coastal West African city of Cotonou amaze audiences at home and abroad with their furious rhythms and mystical harmonies. They joyfully flirt with reggae, salsa and jazz, while drawing on their vast knowledge of traditional vodun (voodoo) music and culture to create vibrant, relaxed dance music. Their voices blend in melodious harmony, delivering messages of hope, faith and traditional wisdom. Their music is simultaneously complex, profound and simple. Their songs connect to the depths of human experience, while lightening the heart with joy.

Jomion & The Uklos is a family band from Benin, West Africa, led by Samuel "Jomion" Gnonlonfoun, founder of the internationally renowned Gangbe Brass Band. With his brothers JB, Mathieu and his daughter Rose, Jomion combines traditional rhythms and songs from Vodoun (Voodoo) culture with reggae, salsa and jazz to create vibrant, relaxed dance music, he named Whedo-vodoo-jazz(W.V.J). Jomion & The Uklos are currently based in Brooklyn, NYC.
