Ayom are musical seafarers who traverse the Black Atlantic from Brazil to Angola and Cape Verde with a distinctly Mediterranean identity. 

"Their sound is a mix of Brazilian, Tropical, Afrolatin and Afrolusitan sounds played with Irresistible swing, like tropical sun penetrating grey clouds".

Their name, Ayom, refers to the "Lord of Music" that in Afro brazilian mithology (Candomblè) exists in the tambor and taught humans to play music and sing.

"Blending century old traditions with the black and rhythmical language of lusophone cultures, Ayom provide a hot-stepping and spiritual voyage across the African diaspora."

​Thus, musicality flourishes nomadic, profound, provocative and dancing, where tradition and contamination, male and female, poetry and energy, joy and engagement coexist.

Ayom is a multicultural band, made up of 6 members from Brazil, Angola, Italy and Greece with Brazilian singer and percussionist Jabu Morales centre stage.


They won: "Best 10 Album" and "Best Group award 2021" (Songlines), "Best Wordl music Album" (German Crytics Association),  they played at Womex showcase 2021, Atlantic music expo, they made a tour of more than 50 concerts in the most important festivals in Europe and they played in mos important international showcases: Womex, AME, Transmusicales festival 2022, Eurosonic 2023 and Sim Sao Paulo 2023.

Ayom Jabu Morales emigrated from her home in Minas Gerais, Brazil to Barcelona in 2011 and now juggles her music career with being a mother, teaching women percussion and her on-going study of Candomblé and Afro Brazilian rhythms. It was an unexpected connection between the italian musicians Alberto, Timoteo and Jabu at a concert in Barcelona mid 2018 that instigated the new formation of the group. Alberto and Timoteo Grignani, Ayom cofounder and percussionist, recognised Jabu's incredible talent, invited her on-board the ship and Ayom was born. Fast-forward to 2019 and an intense, 2 week, recording session in a country house at the home of a Portuguese wine producer in south Lisbon and the manifesto was brought home.

With the first album they received an enthusiastic response from the critic. 

They won: "Best 10 Album" and "Best Group award 2021" (Songlines), "Best World music Album" (German Critics Association),  they played at Womex showcase 2021, Atlantic music expo, Transmusicales 2022, Eurosonic 2023 and Sim São Paulo 2023. They made a tour of more than 50 concerts in the most important festivals in Europe all over the world.
