Earth Cruises - Devils of Moko
Devils Of Moko bring their Jazz-Electric Afro-bass groove to The Pickle Factory as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival with support from Bristol-based Hippo. Devils Of Moko are the latest collective to grace the UK’s exciting new Jazz scene. Consisting of Dominic J Marshall on piano and synth (The Cinematic Orchestra), Mulele Matondo on bass (Kongo Dia Ntotila) and Sam Gardner on drums (Septabeat, Samadhi Quintet), the trio are a powerhouse whose music is a melting pot that captures all of their individual styles.
“If music is water, we are like fish,” says bassist Mulele, who regards no unchartered territory as 'off limits'. There is no single genre to describe their sound, composed of three distinctly different and interesting voices that meet in the common ground of music. But, if you listen for them, you can hear each player’s individual influences shining through - whether it’s in the departure from Western musical structure of Mulele’s grooving Congolese rhythms and sonic stories; Sam’s explorations of electronic music, drum & bass and production that carve an edge into the trio’s voice; or the soulful jazz melodies of Dominic’s piano playing that spark warmth and round the trio’s music into its uplifting soul busting sound.
Joined by Hippo, who describe themselves as a future jazz vision buried in a nest of beefy electronics and bouncing rhythms, expect to be taken on a thrilling sonic journey through genres.
Earth Cruises donates 10% of the profit from all shows to carefully selected causes. Devils of Moko have chosen Shelter who campaign to end homelessness and bad housing in Britain.
