A six-piece band from SA, Slowmango creates raw, progressive, and genre-exploring grooves combining global musical influences with a buffet of psychedelia, funk, jazz and progressive rock. Known for their immersive and visually striking live shows, Slowmango has packed out dancefloors around the country and gained a cult following for their infectious grooves and flair. In July 2023, they released their debut album Hypercolour Miscellaneous to critical acclaim, winning Best Release at the 2023 SA Music Awards. Slowmango’s sound is eclectic and dynamic, embracing lush arrangements that keep a dance floor moving. They pull inspiration from all over the world, incorporating rhythms and melodies found on reissued lost tapes from Africa, Asia and Latin America. Embracing the energy and vibrancy of the Summers of Love of ‘69 and ’89, they lean towards the funkier side of jazz, all with a healthy dose of improvisation.
