Young, cool jazz talents from Berlin: Wanubalé

Wanubale_620x350

Wanubalé is a set of nine young and talented musicians from Berlin and Potsdam who take influences from modern electronic music, jazz, funk and dub, and turn them into an explosive mixture that leaves you no choice but to move!

Their gigs burst with energy – no wonder with a four-headed brass section and two drummers – and live up to highest musical standards. In 2018, Wanubalé won the established German Sparda Jazz Award with jazz legend Klaus Doldinger as a member of the jury by an unanimous vote. Their debut album on Agogo Records is announced for this summer.

What’s best: Wanubalé really love to play and have their own bus fully packed with the complete backline. We’re really proud those young cool guys decided to join our roster, so don’t miss out on the chance to bring them onto your stages. Please contact us for details!

New Underground Soundz

Press #3 small

We start 2019 with introducing two amazing and totally unique World Beat-Dance-Crossover acts, both touring during summer season 2019 and beyond.

So please feel free to get in touch!

Animanz (Live/UK)
Style: Exotica, Psyche, Jazz, Funk, Cumbia, Afro

London-based Animanz and their Congolese singer Juanita Euka. The genre-smashing collective was formed in 2013 and has just released their debut album ‘Exotic Other’ on Tru Thoughts.

Their sound unites flavours of rhumba, cumbia and afro with a punk attitude and electro-funk energy. Animanz say: “a melting pot; an all-inclusive party for everyone”.

Undeground System (Live/New York)
  – in colaboration with AFX Agency
Style: Wave, Disco, Afro Beat, Crossover

At the crossroads of Antibalas and Talking Heads, this New York live band displays a radiant cosmopolitanism and invokes both afrobeat, and disco than no wave. Those who like to define themselves as “advocates of the cultural clash” are far from the warlike opposition! Their mantra would rather be the perpetual search for a dance music likely to move any listener, whatever its cultural or musical references.

Signed on the Soul Clap label and defended by Rough Trade in publishing, Underground System has already released 2 EPs, and released its first album on September 7, 2018.
