About this item

The KutiMangoes' blend combines and contains the soul of Fela Kuti, the delusional arrangements from Charles Mingus and the uncompromising drive from Ornette Coleman.

On side A ("Fire") they are supported by Patrick Kabre from Burkina Faso, who adds the final dose of feeling to the beats with his voice. Three brass players, two drummers and a man at the keys skillfully switch between the instruments.

On side B you find a special edit of "Money Is The Curse" which originally appeared on their third album titled "Afrotropism". The edit is just perfect for the dance floor and any open-minded soul/jazz/funk DJ should be eager to play it out loud.
