Minneapolis, MN
R&B / Psychedelic funk / Afro-futurism
Some artists wear their hearts on their sleeves. ZULUZULUU wear their entire beings for all to see. They’re not a band. They’re not a crew. They’re not a collective. They’re a Tribe. Hailing from Minneapolis, their sound is a cauldron of influences drawn from the very best the city has to offer. The fierce funkiness of Prince. The gospel tidings of Sounds of Blackness. The unbridled enthusiasm of The Replacements. The un-exhaustive flow of Atmosphere.

Made up of six musicians/producers, each member of ZULUZULUU brings their own uncommon perspective to each musical declaration. MMYYKK, Proper-T, Greg Grease, DJ Just Nine, ∆RT P∆RTÉ & Trelly Mo spin yarns about life, heritage, and their perspective, all with an exploratory sound that spans much more than just the few artists listed above.

As fun as their experimental, electronic take on R&B futurism is, it’s not to be taken lightly. They are serious about presenting music that will elicit though and inspire greatness. “High Value Black Art” is what they call it. We call it one of the can’t miss shows at this year’s 80/35.
