about

Copenhagen and Burkina Faso come together in The KutiMangoes!

What would it sound like if Fela Kuti, Charles Mingus and Ornette Coleman formed a band in Copenhagen? Inspired by these artists, The Kutimangoes play their very own mix of afrobeat, eclectic jazz, soul and blues.

Well established names and new faces have come together to create some music that sounds like nothing else, with a focus on a strong groove and pure, unadultered energy. The 6-piece band counts drums, percussion, saxophones, trombones, keyboards, fender rhodes in a playful mix where the musicians change instruments from song to song.

The band has toured in Denmark and Germany and has started collaborating with the extraordinary Patrick Kabre from Burkina Faso. One of their first live shows together with Kabre took place at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2013. He is also featured on the opening track of this album, an Afrobeat bomb of the highest order.

The album will be released on CD, vinyl LP and digital download.
