Funglebonk-LiveLounge is- - - -
Live played keys, electronic drums and percussion combined with expressive vocals result in an interesting blend of jazz, funk, African and lounge.
In the beginning the question was how to merge our love for manually played instruments, the dynamics and the groove – the so called “human touch” – with our fascination for the infinite width of electronically generated music.
During the techno and house parties of the 80-90ies the new music did not seem to have much to do with what was technically feasible with our background and equipment. On one side there was something missing with the electronic music, and yet it was more than what we could ever expect.
With Funglebonk we play within both worlds.
Never again we want to play without the deep rich basses, the noise-free clear sounds, the chirping, the swishing, the infinite number of sound creations without natural acoustic originals.
We are rhythm and groove, we revel in the combination of known and familiar sounds like the voice, as well as new tone colors that surprise and delight us first, but ultimately trigger known associations.
We simply extend the horizon; the sun is shining from blue to red!
