Mdungu is a nine piece band based in Amsterdam. The musicians from Holland, Luxembourg, Spain and Gambia bring their music with skill, flair and energy that is irresistable to any audience. African music by Mdungu is a strong musical experience: it funks, it grooves, it moves your feet and feeds your soul. The percussion is dazzling, the melodies enchanting and the vocals captivating, creating a chemical reaction that makes people start dancing and romancing. The moment Mdungu kicks off and the music takes over there is no future, no past. No borders, no passport. The groove is king, and that’s the way it should be.

Strangefruitmusicblog aims to keep readers up to speed on everything musical and we think y’all should know about de Echte Boter: Tropical Edicion party on the 10 of September hosted by Rundfunk. For more info on what to expect click here (info in Dutch).

Why should you know about this?! … Because even though this is not strictly up the Strange Fruit alley it’s kinda dope and we think so because of the very hot tropical latin mix Rundfunk provided us with available for download and tracklist info when you click here.
