Mudibu and the Jezebel Quartet - 2018
Experience the incredible sound of Otis Redding’s music as two of the UK’s most exciting soul acts join forces to create the world’s funkiest Otis tribute!
Originally commissioned by Soul Cookers Records for Saint Paul Soul Jazz Festival 2008, this authentic celebration of Otis’ music pairs charismatic Burundian singer songwriter Mudibu with Hammond and horns from The Jezebel Sextet.
The result is a truly uplifting show steeped in raw soul and late 1960s RnB (the real deal!!!) that is guaranteed to get you on the good foot. The show list features over 20 Otis Redding classics, performed live backed by a 7 piece band with Hammond organ, 3 piece horn section and 100% authentic instrumentation and arrangements.
Recent performances include The Jazz Cafe, The Boisdale Club, The Hideaway Club, and Hootananny in London; Band On the Wall in Manchester; The Stables in Milton Keynes; The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal. Headline festival appearances include Saint Paul Soul Jazz Festival; Roubaix Vintage Weekender; Tighten Up Festival in Marseille; and Grand Casino Soulstice Party in Nice.
“Cool, slinky, and tight in all the right places” — Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show, BBC 6Music
“Pure dynamite! One of the best funk soul bands in the world!” — DJ Healer Selecta
“Pure unadulterated, funky soulful music born out of sheer love” — Rev Chunky
Burundian singer songwriter Mudibu grew up with a heartfelt love of 1960s soul and RnB and voice to match. He’s performed all over Europe and Africa and his six-track EP Slow Me was released on Akazi Records in 2008. Mudibu’s new album Inzatsa (Fireflies) is out soon.
