In 2009 Jimmy performed at The British Lovers Rock Show where he received an Award for his contribution to Lovers Rock and British Black Music. With a lengthy legacy in the UK and international music scenes, Jamaican-born drummer, Sam Kelly, is highly respected for his musical ability across all genres including reggae, R&B, soul, jazz and funk. FOWOKAN is also Paul Jobson (MD/keyboards/bvs), Spy Austin (bass/bvs), Tony Qunta (guitar/bvs), Michael ‘Lally’ Carey (guitar/bvs) and Jerome Marcus (percussion/bvs). Each of these musicians brings their own history of great performances and collaborations.
