occidental photo 1 Chicago’s Occidental Brothers Dance Band International African jazz and roots conjures sounds of the golden age of the African guitar band and has made them favorites of music critics and devotees of the style, The group is led by guitarist Nathaniel Braddock, an instructor at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music and twice profiled in Guitar Player Magazine. Braddock is joined by jazz phenom Greg Ward on alto sax,  Joshua Ramos on bass, Makaya McCraven on drums and Zambian singing star Matthew Tembo,. After playing the Pitchfork festival in 2008 and GlobalFest in January 2009, the OBDBI experienced a meteoric rise–graduating from Chicago street festivals to the stages of Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, the Montreal and Vancouver Jazz Festivals in the course of a year.
