The band YAKUMBÈ is formed up by 17 individuals playing several different types of percussion instruments that comes together and creates amazing high energy music full of life and vibrations.
When they asked me to design their album I visited several of their rehearsal I was struck by the music and vibrations that flowed through me as the played and I wanted to capture this feeling in the design. Furthermore I was inspired by the analog simplicity in the music, something that I also wanted to capture in the design.
The pattern was created in Illustrator and then I choose 17 different colours one for each member of the band and produced the artwork by cutting out the pattern from the pieces of paper. The the cover is triptych and I choose to the let the pattern spill out over the edges so that it became present across the design
