Fulu Miziki

Fulu Miziki, the up-and-coming ‚Afrofuturist‘ collective, who make their own instruments out of garbage, have astonished the world with their innovative sound of industrial soukous-inspired punk, electronic music!

Fulu Miziki roughly translates to “music from garbage” which is an accurate description of the thrillingly chaotic Eco-Friendly-Afro-Futuristic-Punk-Ensemble of artists who come straight from a future where humans have reconciled with mother earth and with themselves.

This multidisciplinary collective of artists is based in the heart of Africa, in the Congolese capital city Kinshasa. For several years now, it’s members have spent their time conceptualizing an orchestra made from objects found in the trash, constantly changing instruments, and always in search of new sounds. Making their own instruments, performance costumes, and masks is essential to the approach of Fulu Miziki’s musical core ideology.

Their unique sound supports a pan-African message of artistic liberation, peace and a severe look at the ecological situation of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the whole world. For Fulu everything can be recovered and reenchanted. Since 2020 Fulu has taken the European music festival circuit in storm, playing at numerous music venues, festivals and running workshops with the youth.

Their debut EP Ngbaka, released in February 18, 2022, received international attention leading to the vinyl presses to sell out. Ngbaka is ‘first and foremost a party record, it’s tinged with an undercurrent of urgency, imploring the listener to shake their ass in one breath’ (Pitchfork). Find the root sound of rumba from their hometown as well as the edgy influence of the EDM-inspired Nyege Nyege scene coming out of Uganda.
