M'Lumbo is a 9-piece multimedia band that crosses the boundaries of electronic, psychedelic, jazz, and world music. M'lumbo has spent the last four years cultivating a new style born from the underground "d8E" parties of the early 21st century. In the wake of increased police pressure and he completion of the scene's esoteric mission, M’lumbo has emerged to bring it's psychedelic message to a mainstream audience. The group is reemerging with three new releases and a new series of public performances following their sold out debut at Joe's Pub last month.
The band has over the years in its different incarnations released albums labels such as Warner Brothers, Staalplaat and World Domination. Group members have worked as sideman, directors, editors and sound designers to a host of world-class artists and clients ranging from MTV to Chrysler, ESPN to Abbey Lincoln, Mazda to Luther Vandross, Methodman to Pacha Massive, Gil Evans to P Diddy, Pharrell to Pearl Jam. The group has given countless orgiastic and enthralling performances at both the old and new Knitting Factory and other N.Y.C. venues with opening acts such as Sean Lennon, Badawi, Mantronix, virtual reality inventor Jaron Lanier and Duncan Sheik, among others.
