Janka Nabay & The Bubu Gang - Build Music

Project duration: December 2016 - August 2017

I made this album package rather quickly in the winter of 2016/2017, right before the birth of my son. Luaka Bop requested a warm color palette, so I chose these very warm and vintage looking tones, and colorized Janka to match. The back cover was inspired by Afrobeat records from the 70s. Unfortunately, Janka passed away on April 2, 2018, so this became his last official record. I was lucky enough to meet him once when he played a festival in Berlin, and can confirm what everyone said about him, that he was an energetic being that beamed out through his radiant smile and presence. His brand of bubu music will be missed. Check out Build Music if you like to dance! Below are some ads and a t-shirt that I made for Janka Nabay's last tour.
