The creative power-duo consists of Luca T. Mai – bariton saxophone player of the band “Zu” – and Antonio Zitarelli – drummer of the famous trio “Neo” – are back with 7, new, mind-blowing tracks.
No label will stick to it, impossible to tag or forced into any fancy box, this is not metal, not jazz, but unconventional, fresh, borderless music. The real thing. Probably not suitable for everybody, but only for true, conscious listeners. This is not tasteless, instantly forgettable background noise, it demands your full attention, but worth every single second of listening.
Afro-flavoured, addictive, tribal rhythms and sometimes hypnotizing, sometimes quite contorted and aggressive saxophone lines, melodies and slaughters. At the crossroads of avant-garde jazz and driving, intense hardcore, Mombu will definitively grind you into the ground. You’re doomed!
