Based in Chicago, Illuminati Congo’s sound dissolves the barrier between conscious and unconscious, reggae and hip hop, and light and dark, all the while maintaining a light-hearted, playful, childlike and comedic musical uniqueness. This coupled with Jahn’s global travels teaching yoga as well as his penchant for writing books covering such myriad subject matter as tantra, gnostic Rastafarianism, health, and healing, and alchemy makes Illuminati Congo one of the most interesting musical outfits on the scene.
Illuminati Congo performances can only be described as electric, and Jahn has spent the last four years touring the U.S., the Caribbean, and Australia. Illuminati Congo is a regular collaborator with both local and national acts and has played and recorded with Lee “Scratch” Perry, KRS-One, Pretty Lights, Dead Prez, Big Youth, Lutan Fyah, Digable Planets, Shabazz Palaces, Del the Funky Homosapien, Anthony B, Burro Banton, King Kong, Jahdan Blakkamoore, Perfect Giddimani, Sa-Roc, Zion I, Dj Fresh, One Be Lo, Eligh, MR Vegas and Rocker T, among others.
Kicking off 2020 Illuminati Congo joined forces with new management in Ascension Music Group and released “Obeah” his latest EP. “Obeah” is insightful with an energized yet relaxed occult sound with a current twist making it easy to vibe and ride to. Fans should stay excited as Congo plans to release new music every month in 2020.
