Jahner­a­tion is Theo and Ogach Chant, a reg­gae / dance­hall / hip hop duo from Par­is foun­ded in 2009. Diversity, unity and shar­ing of music is their main pur­pose which they apply to their lyr­ics and ways of work­ing. For the very first time they bring their excep­tion­al show to the UK for a one-off show in Lon­don at O2 Academy2 Isling­ton on 18 April 2020. Encour­aging, hope­ful and dynam­ic lyr­ics com­bined with catchy and melod­ic rid­dims are the ingredi­ents of this Parisi­an music­al cock­tail.

In 2011 they pos­ted the track ‘Me Nah Fed Up’ (watch here) on You­Tube with the French sing­er Naâ­man. The videos ini­ti­ated a fast craze on YT which gave the oppor­tun­ity to the duo to devel­op and they cre­ated a vast ded­ic­ated fol­low­ing on social net­works. In 2015, Jahner­a­tion reached a mile­stone in its devel­op­ment, by join­ing the Ovast­and label. A new team of four musi­cians was formed and they star­ted tour­ing intens­ively. The clips ‘No Want’ and ‘Reload’ (shot in India) came out and quickly accu­mu­lated over one mil­lion views.

After the award win­ning first album Jahner­a­tion — released in 2017 — their last release, Stuck In The Middle (Septem­ber 2019), clearly showed that they can handle sev­er­al music styles with ease. From reg­gae, via pop, rock and dance­hall, to hip hop vibes, all can be enjoyed on this album — it’s dance­able with catchy melod­ies and rich arrange­ments. They are cur­rently tour­ing in Europe and they will play at the Olympia, Par­is in March 2020 and travel on to Lon­don in April for their first ever UK show.
