MOUNT KUJO & DODGE SEDAN
Dodge Sedan is a funk-fusion instrumental group founded in early 2020 by the Italian composer, bassist and bandleader, Nicola Russo. Kindred spirits from Melbourne’s various postcodes and musical styles make up the quintet, performing deep grooves and captivating improvisations. Inspired heavily by Snarky Puppy, FORQ, Alpha Mist and KOKOROKO, just to name a few, Nicola describes his creation as “a frenzied ride through space that transports the audience into a world of rhythm and dance”.
Powerful, dynamic, sometimes gentle but most predominantly highly energetic; Mount Kujo is a Melbourne based, internationally formed act blending Funk and Jazz influenced by Latin and Afro-beat. A collective of jazz musicians from all around the world deeply rooted in Melbourne’s music scene, playing original arrangements rich of colourful harmonic changes, syncopated rhythms with explosive horn sections and extensive solo parts.
Just four humans seeking in a world of quests. Just four brains colliding in a timeless breath. Just four wizards playing a game of chess. Just four musicians designing a tuneful death. Gestalt is more than the sum of its parts…
