about

Blossom brings together Grammy winning slack-key guitarist Jim “Kimo” West with Billboard Top-10 artist Joss Jaffe. Presenting a never before seen combination of unique instrumentation including Indian tablas, Hawaiian percussion, African Ngoni (harp), a bevy of custom and rare guitars, and ambient soundscapes. The music at times feels like a tapestry of Dreamy Ambience, Hawaiian music, African kora music, Jazz, and world music reminiscent of the 70’s band Shakti with John McLaughlin and Zakir Hussein (who Tabla player Joss Jaffe counts as one of his primary teachers and has performed with en ensemble).

West, respected in his own right with a 2021 Grammy win for “More Guitar Stories”, is also well known as the lead guitarist with “Weird” Al Yankovic for over 40 years. Jaffe is a Los Angeles based multi-instrumentalist known for his Ambient album “Meditation Music” which charted on Billboard in 2019. He has toured the world performing at premiere yoga events and transformational festivals.
