Large-ensemble soul / world / jazz from London drawing on the music of West Africa, Cuba, Brazil, american funk & soul, folk, jazz and cinematic music.
With Weightless, their second LP, London-based soul/jazz ensemble Teotima are celebrating friendship, creativity, love, meditation, progress, and the work of being happy.
Greg Sanders, Teotima’s musical director and guitarist, crafts tracks that take full advantage of the remarkable breadth and depth of talent within the band’s core members. “One of the most important things about Teotima is that the music is written with the specific players in mind - each player’s vibe - their voice and character on their instrument is an essential part of the sound of the group”.
