Orchestre Jazira was founded in London by Isaac Tagoe, a master drummer from Ghana, and its singers, bassist and percussionist are from Ghana and Sierra Leone; its guitarist, drummer and horn section are from Britain.
Orchestra Jazira was an Anglo-Ghanaian band. The band consisted of Jane Shorter playing tenor sax, Sofi Hellborg playing alto, Nigel Watson, Kwadwo Oteng playing keyboards, Opata Azu playing bass and Colin Bass. They broke up in 1987. They released the album "Nomadic Activities" 1984. YouTube Encyclopedic. Orchestre Jazira - Love. Orchestre Jazira(Ghana/U. :Money/Andowa 1984 Highlife Afro-World Fusion. 3 Mustaphas 3.

True to form, Jazira shifted direction yet again with Nomadic Activities in 1984. The album was consciously and defiantly at odds with what both the UK record business and its public then expected of an ‘African’ band - that is a simple, happy, all-night party sound. The approach was just too moody, complex and cosmopolitan to fit the bill. In a desperate attempt to gain radio play, Beggars Banquet persuaded Jazira to release one of the album’s least demanding tracks, ‘Happy Day’, as a single - and when that failed, let the band’s contract expire.
