Goa has its bluesman in the name of Slow Joe. The coincidence, the “accident”, a 68-year-old man that never wanted to be a singer, but just sang because he loved it. Quite a story. Joe met by chance on a beach in Goa, former heroin addict, is now about to release his first album.
You of course know Gooffee from their moombah remix of Stevie Wonder’s Supertition or their “Colours that rave” released on the Moombah-Thong’s New Wave Vol. II.
