It feels good to be back. After almost 24 months of hiatus since our last Family Reunion in 2019, we just can´t wait to do it all over again in our hometown.

To (re)start the whole journey, we are so thrilled to welcome two young gifted artists we started to cooperate with – coming from the the city of Horace Tapscott, Nate Morgan, Madlib, Flylo & more – Stones Throw´s artists Jamael Dean & Sharada Shashidhar for their Berlin debut. They will tour with their own band for the occasion celebrating their forthcoming album on Stones Throw to be released at the end of October.

Hailing from the Los Angeles jazz circles are jazz prodigies Jamael Dean and Sharada Shashidhar. Jamael, the grandson of legendary soul jazz drummer Donald Dean, has toured with Kamasi Washington, Thundercat, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Carlos Niño. Jamael’s music reflects the dual influence of his Los Angeles contemporaries and jazz ancestors. His works also include beats and production, like for Sharada’s debut album Rahu. Sharada Shashidhar’s soulful voice takes inspiration from jazz and Indian classical music, that influences her songwriting and productions. Her elaborate harmonies and vocal creativity come together in a new beat-orientated spiritual jazz. Together, Jamael and Sharada are also an integral part of the legendary Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, founded by Horace Tapscott in 1961 and still active in various constellations since then.
