german band the mighty mocambos are funky and fresh and fighting to keep soul alive!

January 16, 2017

Funk is alive and well! The revival we’re seeing in its influence on pop culture and music direction is through the roof and bands like The Mighty Mocambos clearly were ahead of the curve. Hamburg, Germany’s own The Mighty Mocambos specialize in the type of funk that James Brown would get down to. From the description of the new album, “The Mighty Mocambos’ new album “Showdown” sets another cornerstone in their prolific career as a globally active instrumental funk outfit. While maintaining their organic approach of recording real musicians live on tape, the group has refined their trademark sound with a dramatic edge, a hard hitting production and ventures into less obvious musical territories.” “Showdown” is a groove from top to bottom and you need to press play right now!
