Originally commissioned by Saint Paul Soul Jazz Festival (France) and subsequently touring across Europe, this year’s show pairs the vocal talent of Burundian singer songwriter Mudibu with an authentic Stax sound of Hammond and horns from The Jezebel Sextet. The result is a truly uplifting show that is steeped in raw soul and hard 1960s funk, guaranteed to get you on the good foot.
Mudibu grew up with a heartfelt love of 1960s soul and R&B with a voice to match. He’s performed all over Europe and Africa his album Inzatsa (Fireflies) was released by Akazi records in 2015.
The Jezebel Sextet have toured with singers Sir Joe Quarterman, Rev Chunky, and Randa and the Soul Kingdom, played all over Europe, been broadcast on BBC 6 music, and appeared twice on London’s LBC radio. They appear on Freestyle Records’ Fresh Out The Box compilation and released their debut album Lift It Up in 2012 produced by Leigh Gracie.
