"Fantastic to have The Mocambos back, sounding as sharp and as fresh as ever. Essential funk!"

Craig Charles (The Craig Charles Funk And Soul Show - BBC 6Music)

The Mighty Mocambos and their many incarnations have released dozens of 45s and severalalbums on their own imprint Mocambo Records and other labels such as Kay Dee, Truth & Soul,Tramp, Légère and Favorite Recordings, to name a few.

They have collaborated with musical legends such as Afrika Bambaataa, Lee Fields, Ice-T, CharlieFunk, Peter Thomas or Kenny Dope, put new talent like Gizelle Smith and Caroline Lacaze on themap, brought Caribbean steel drums to funk clubs with their alter ego Bacao Rhythm & SteelBand, and have toured through all civilized parts of the continent and beyond for the better partof the last years.

Their unique style and trademark sound are loved by peers, fans and critics alike anddistinguishes them from mere retro-copycat-acts as well as overproduced plastic soul.

The Mighty Mocambos continue to deliver their brand of funk with blazing horns, soulful guitars,driving drums and basslines combined with an extra bit of quirkiness. When not producingrecords for one of their many incarnations and collaborations, the band is touring steadily.Whoever witnessed a concert will tell you about the musicality, passion, energy, humour and joythat the band loves to bring to the people.
