The Cavemen will perform at Super-Sonic Jazz Festival 2023 in Amsterdam.

The Cavemen


In Paradiso

With their invention of ‘Highlife Fusion’ which combines Highlife, Afrobeat, Jazz, and Soul music, the Cavemen are pioneering the renaissance of highlife music and making it relevant to a contemporary generation that is hungry to connect to their roots. Since 2018, the Lagos-based sibling duo, composed of Kingsley Chukwudi Okorie and Benjamin Chukwudi James, have multiplied their cult following with experimental nostalgic records and electric live performances that have carried on a reputation of their own.

Fueled by a desire to make the kind of music they grew up listening to, the band has taken a journey to bring the sounds of the past into the future, positioning themselves as a bridge between generations. They are the unrivaled orchbearers for modern Highlife music.
