Springing from the music of Fela Kuti, the Danish band The KutiMangoes deliver an energetic and extremely playful version of afrobeat. Without guitars or bass, just driven by different wind instrument and wild percussions, they actually accomplish to create their own kind of afrobeat.
This session was originally aired on Danish national television channel DR K as part of a series centered around Danish jazz artists.
