The KutiMangoes – Afro-Fire (Tramp)

KUTIMANGOESHere is the band from Copenhagen Denmark that is going to dominate European music festivals this summer. The band aspires to combine the “delusional” jazz arrangements of Charles Mingus with rhythms inspired by Tony Allen and the funky Nigerian stylings of Fela Kuti – but in an original manner! They succeed admirably with a 3 horn brass section, two percussionists, keyboards, & collaborating musician Patrick Kabre from Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso. Great Afro-jazz!

Line up : Gustav Rasmussen (trombone & guitar), Casper Mikkelsen (percussion), Michael Blicher (sax), Lars Greve (sax), Johannes Buhl, (keyboards), Morten Ærø (percussion), & composer Patrick Kabre (vocs).
