MANKES (NL) is a two-piece band and their music breathes a blend of cinematic folk with a hint a fado and a healthy dose of darkness – alternative indie-folk if you like. Keywords based on what others say are: dynamic, melancholic, atmospheric, intense.
The musicians play various instruments each, resulting in a remarkable sound.
So far MANKES released 2 mini albums (2014, 2016) 1 live album (2018) and 1 full-length (2019) plus several video’s. The band toured through Scandinavia, Germany and England and played loads of shows in The Netherlands. A wide variety of venues witnessed the band hypnotizing it’s audience: festivals big and small, living rooms and clubs.
MANKES likes to keep a honest and sincere profile with a strong DIY approach.
