With a tight headlock on the nu-funk movement, Kung Fu is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution to the music scene.
Blurring the lines between electro-jazz-fusion and ’70s-style street fighter funk, Kung Fu merges early Headhunters and Weather Report mentality with contemporary electronic ideology like yin and yang. Although the ensemble cast enjoys a seasoned pedigree that reads like an all-star jam, Kung Fu has gained a rabid following that has led to sold out club shows around the US and sets at major music festivals. The powerhouse quintetÍs live show has been described as “lethal funk”, “explosive”, “jaw dropping”, and “musically mesmerizing”. With several tracks from their self-titled 2011 debut album already on regular rotation on Sirius/XM Radio’s JamOn, their highly anticipated follow-up album, Tsar Bomba, dropped March 4, 2014.
