About Wagogo

Genre: Afro-Caribbean & World Beat

Wagogo Banda has been a mainstay world beat band in Albuquerque since 1993. Their sound is inspired by the music of Zimbabwe, Central Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean, mixed with Chicano and country roots music of the USA.

Born, raised and loved in Albuquerque, Wagogo is an eclectic group of musicians that make a rhythmic cocktail out of their Chicano influences, Northern Mexico folk songs, warm calypso island grooves, and the captivating spirit music of Zimbabwe.
