The KutiMangoes respectfully takes West African music and fuses it with their own western musical backgrounds to create a new sound.
From the beginning the band’s goal was not trying to play or sound like African musicians (how could they?) but all about mixing cultures to create a new, global expression.
Their debut “Afro-Fire” (2014) was nominated for 5 Danish Grammy Awards, winning “Best World Music Album” and “Best World Music Track”. Following the release the band toured extensively in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
In November ’16 “Made in Africa” was released, recorded partly in Burkina Faso and Mali.
“Our mission is not to be musical anthropologists, but to create music together, to share music and unite people through music” – says Gustav Rasmussen and continues “This is one of the reasons we fell in love with African music long, long ago – for its ability to unite the body, the heart and the ear, and for its tradition that unites everyone that takes part.” Michael Blicher adds: “When we are touring we make a point of reaching out to people that do not usually experience live music. So when we have a morning off we play a concert at for instance a building site or a duck farm – it’s our way of sharing the music.”
