Mdungu is a formation of nine international musicians based in The Netherlands. Their style is unique. Intense, raw and highly danceable. A fat horn section, a thriving rhythm section, lyrical guitars and a pinch of vocals are the cornerstones of the Mdungu sound. Mdungu is a match of African and Western music. Mixed with funk, rock, jazz and samba, played with heart and soul: African music the Mdungu way.
Mdungu was founded in 2003 by alto saxophonist Thijs van Milligen. From the start Mdungu is a most welcome guest on (inter)national stages and festivals.
