Three years ago, a group of renowned danish jazz musicians showed up on the Copenhagen club scene. Their goal was to put together a band which would fuse the west african music of Fela Kuti with the inimitable style of jazz bassist Charlie Mingus. The two creative directors Michael Blicher (sax) and Gustav Rasmussen (trombone / guitar) dubbed their project The KutiMangoes (TKM). Their debut album Afro-Fire took off like a rocket and won the danish Grammy award in 2014 for Best World Music Album and also was nominated in categories for Best Compositions as well as Best Alternative Jazz album. Following this success the band appeared on worldwide festivals and laid down frenetic and inspired performances in Denmark and Germany.
