Funk fans down under get ready to witness the Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro live experience as the serious Saitama six-piece embark on a run of dates across Australia that include Woodford Festival, Peats Ridge Festival, Sydney Festival, Mona Foma and The Basement!
From the outskirts of Tokyo, from the most unknown prefecture in the country, come the most exciting and brightest hopes in funk ever. The six-piece phenomenon, the nasty groove-making cats, the deep-dapping and history changing dogs call themselves
Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro.
Well dressed and slick but playing some of the rawest and deepest funk that would shake anyone’s booty, added with the furious energy of a rock and roll band, these amazing gentlemen have toured relentlessly across clubs of all sizes in Japan, as well as rocking a packed house at Fuji Rock Festival 2008 and countless festivals across the planet.
They have built a reputation as one of the finest funk units kicking it today. Signed to the prestigious P-Vine label in Japan, and also confirming a release through the highly regarded Jazzman label, these young groove merchants are bound to take on the world. And your soul.
