Aktando is a Hip Hop / Jazz / Latin band formed in 2016 by composer & arranger Jérôme Gloppe.
Originally being Jérôme Gloppe creation, Aktando has gradually gained attention worldwide from the vast amount of live shows they perform and have won over many listeners with their unique blend of English, Spanish and acoustic/electronic elements.
Their modern sound is created through the fusion of hip-hop, jazz and latin with elements of reggae, soul, afrobeat, salsa and funk.
Primarily influenced by Jazz and contemporary music, their repertoire is original but finds its influence from the greats such as Thelonious Monk and Scott Storch,
On the other hand, Salsa has been a predominate presence in their composition through the influence of Colombian music since their first album « Son Asi ».
Aktando is currently releasing their second album entitled EARTH co-written entirely by Jérôme Gloppe and Branko Milojkovic. They are also planning a release party and south American tour as of 2019.
