Fuelled by groove rhythms, Latin culture, jazz-funk, rock ‘n’ roll grit and good coffee, a collective of musicians from around the globe bring with them their very own unique musical identity and vernacular to create a unified sound that defies genre. These guys tell the stories of their influences, traditions, and personalities under a new music entity – Cargo Mas.
Prior to cooking up a soulful, cross-genre storm in Cargo Mas, these musicians have most certainly made their mark, having collaborated with artists such as Zap Mama, Lianne La Havas, Gabriel Rios and Guru’s Jazzmatazz.
Right now, Cargo Mas is finishing a first album, featuring eclectic collaborations with, among others Köln based trombone player Andy Hunter.
„Cargo Mas deliver some fantastically funky future-jazz grooves!“- Chris Geddes (Belle & Sebastian)
