Matuki are a 12 piece band who play west African music fused with urban funk. Their first live gigs were at Glastonbury Festival '15, where they immediately won audiences over with sizzling horns, tuff bass-lines, interlocking guitars & soaring vocals. Led by master drummer and lead vocalist, Abraham Ebou, they play Festivals and anywhere big enough to hold 11 blisteringly good musicians. They're based in Bristol, a city renowned for it's multi cultural dance music.
Their debut album, Injo, fuses Afrobeat with full on urban funk. It has jazz & psychedelic influences too, resulting in mesmerising tunes with heavyweight horn lines. Having gained an enviable reputation as a live band, Matuki are now touring to promote their album.
Recommendations are to drink lots of fluids and wear loose clothing.
