The Juju Orchestra was founded 2004 by DJ Sammy and producer and sound engineer Oliver Belz. They are based in Germany, right in the middle of nowhere between Hamburg, Berlin and Hannover. Some of their musical idols are Caetano Veloso, Charlie Parker, Miles Davies, Steely Dan, Stan Getz. Of course they are influenced by all of them, but the Juju's created their own language. In some words : contemporary soul, jazz and latin music with a vintage sound.
In 2005 the first single release "Kind Of Latin Rhythm / Funky Nassau" entered the peak position of the German Club Charts. Great reactions from around the world followed, by famos dj's as well as by the audience. the next 12" "Take Four / Hip Shake" did it the same way.
