Welcome to The 2nd Afro Temple!
The 2nd Afro Temple was born of a desire to demonstrate the beauty and intelligence inherent in the musical heritage of Africa, and combine African rhythm with a jazz and art music approach.
The 2nd Afro Temple aims to break the colonial dominance that harmony exerts over music and foster the equal value of rhythm. Therefore, focus is on the melodic qualities of African drums and rhythm instruments and on the organic relationship between rhythm and melody.
The 2nd Afro Temple is that spot in universe where the craftmanship of Sabu Martinez meets the soulfullness of Don Cherry.
