Fulu Miziki Kolektiv

May 2022

Music-Net is proud to present Fulu Miziki Kolektiv, an eco-friendly futuristic Afro-punk-ensemble collective of artists beamed straight from a future where humans have reconciled with Mother Earth (and with themselves).

This multidisciplinary collective of artists is based in the heart of Africa, in the Congolese capital city Kinshasa. For several years now its members have spent much of their time conceptualising an orchestra made purely from objects found in the trash, constantly changing instruments, always in search of new sounds. For Fulu, everything can be recovered and re-enchanted.

Talking about the forthcoming UK live shows, Fulu Miziki Kolektiv founder member Old Pisko Crane said today, “As we used to sit in our homes in Kinshasa creating this music, instruments and costumes, we never thought it would be appreciated this much.  We are very excited to be coming to the UK for our first time – this is a dream come true.” 

Making their own instruments, performance costumes, and masks is essential to the approach of Fulu Miziki Kolektiv‘s musical core ideology. Their unique sound supports a pan-African message of artistic liberation, peace and an intense study of the ecological situation in both the Democratic Republic of Congo and the whole planet.

Their presence and power are otherworldly, their rhythms and energy impossible to not dance, move or jump around to, as lucky concertgoers in Bangor, Leeds, Manchester and Bristol are about to discover via the Kolektiv’s first ever UK tour!
