The sound of Hogo Fogo’s musical universe derives from the four corners of the world. Often boundary-pushing in their improvisations - other times insisting in their melodic ostinatios. With inspirations from Nordic Folk, American Jazz and African Funk Hogo Fogo is a breath of fresh air on the Danish music scene. The band describes their own music as a kind of World/Urban/Soul/Folk intstrumental groove music. The four musicians Michael Dalgas (Dr), Lars Emil Riis (Keys), Spencer Gross (Gui) and Søren Lund (Bas) have played together for more than 14 years as backingband for a wide range of artists. Together they have a natural and effortless musical understanding that often transcend musical genres.
Now the times was right for making their own band Hogo Fogo and with their debut album releasing the 18th of June this summer, we recommend checking out this exciting new band.
