Hypernova are an explosive collective of young musicians. Featuring instrumentalists from: Nihilism, Invariance and Where Pathways Meet. Hypernova seek to use all of their musical influences to explore new sounds, making you move your feet with their Neo-Bebop sound.
They draw their influence from a plethora of musical styles including: Renaissance music, be-bop, neo-classical music, drill music and reggae. As pioneers of the genres Neo-Bebop (bebop music infused with Bachian harmony) and Jazz drill they fuse traditional music with the music of today. They don’t just stop at music, drawing from philosophy, sociology and neuroscience to impart wisdom on their audiences. In a fashion that is simultaneously intellectual and primitive. Though this seems oxymoronic, band leader Deji Ijishakin or Xvngo, uses his prowess as an orator to engage the audience in a theatrical manner. All of this is complemented with the nihilistic comedy all of the band partake in whilst onstage.
