Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro
New Album: ~ Perfect Times ~
Think; highly charged Japanese Godzilla funk, mixed with the raw, deep soulful grooves, laced with cosmic psychedelia and a touch of rock. Fused together with the visceral power of six incredible musicians and you get the savours of funk, Tokyo’s Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro.
"Imagine ZZ Top jamming with early seventies Kool & The Gang" - Tokyo Jazz Notes
Back in 2009/2010, Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro took Australia by storm on their very first tour to our fine shores. Touring their debut self-titled album as part of the Sydney Festival, Peats Ridge, Woodford Folk & Mona Foma Festivals, MMK also sold out sideshows on presales in Melbourne and Sydney.
Making a triumphant return to Australia in 2012 with their second album of modern classic Soul/Groove, ‘UHURU PEAK’, teaming up with Instrumental Recordings / MGM coincided with yet again another fully sold out tour of Australia.
So get ready as the leading exponents and groove-making cats return to Australia with an aim to destroy dance floors at all three Falls Music & Arts Festivals, before taking to the east coast for a string of sideshows.
Help Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro celebrate their third Australian release and third album to date when they bring 'PERFECT TIMES' to life, showcasing their legacy of groove, classic funk and the group’s rhythmic dynamism. Joining MMK is a plethora of up and coming and established funk, soul and jazz artists and DJs from all over Australia including: Cactus Channel, DJ Chris Gill, Declan Kelly, The Liberators, Aloysius Gallen Lo-Fi Band and more.
