About this item
Zu are an Italian instrumental / experimental music band from Rome.
Zu release their brand new full length via Ipecac Recordings, entitled ‘Cortar Todo’, recorded in the countryside near Bologna, Italy, in the summer of 2014.
The album features some very special guests including keyboard player Joey Karam (The Locust), Italian guitar maverick Stefano Pilia (who plays regularly with the likes of Mike Watt, David Grubbs and Rokia Traore) and, perhaps most unexpectedly, a field recording of an indigenous Shipibo medicine man recorded by Zu bass player Massimo during his travels around the Amazon.
The band have previously toured with Mike Patton as Zu / Patton Quartet.
For Fans of John Zorn, Mike Patton, Noise.
