Bad Vibrations Presents: Fulu Miziki

fulu miziki 9294
Hailing from the Democratic Republic of Congo and signed to Moshi Moshi's Prah Recordings, Fulu Miziki (roughly translating as “music from the garbage”) are an eco-friendly Afro-Futurist collective.
The instruments they design, build and play are a masterclasses in upcycling. From guembris built out of computer casing, to jerry-can drum-kits, keyboard inventions from wood, springs and aluminium pipes, and old flip-flops used as pads by percussion players, their ethos lies in the respect of nature, the celebration of its gifts and the importance of its preservation through environmentalism.
Musically Fulu Miziki draw from the roots of their native Congolese rumba and soukous, incorporating its driving percussion and tightly rhythmic instrumentation alongside group vocals that move between chanting refrains and interloping harmonies. The hyperactive nature of these dizzyingly psychedelic jams is married with a diaspora of club culture from both at home and abroad.

Live, they are like no other band.
