MAMUD BAND is an ensemble created at the beginning of the 90s by the percussionist Lorenzo Gasperoni. Through the past 20 years the band has experienced different music styles, finding at last its own level in the Afrobeat, a style created through the fusion of funk, soul, highlife and African tradition. In this enthralling music, enlivened by a sharp and hypnotic winds, the modern sound of bass, guitar and drums blend with traditional percussion.

The new record of MAMUD BAND Opposite People is a heartfelt tribute to Fela Kuti, great Nigerian musician, intellectual and politician.
Ten pieces of his vast repertoire have been sorted out to explore new horizons of the Afrobeat. Everlasting pieces, such as Colonial Mentality, Egbe Mi O, Zombie, No Agreement have been arranged by the band, which has created an irresistible sound mix, where African, Cuban and Brazilian percussions mix together in modern Funk, Dub, Reggae and Latin grooves.
This new CD boasts as special guest the singer Bunna, founder of the historic Italian reggae band Africa Unite.
The present band is made up of 9 musicians: a powerful winds section, enriched by Cuban musicians and consisting of trumpet, sax alto and sax baritone, guitar, electric piano and a rhythmic bass and drums section, beating heart of the band. The percussions section consists of two sets, which, through their drums and grooves, combine different styles from Africa, Cuba and Brazil.

Mamud Band has already published two records: the prize winning La Vendetta di Grog, thanks to which the band has also been selected in 1996 to represent Italy at the «Biennale Giovani Artisti dell’Europa e del Mediterraneo» and Amore Pirata, produced and published in 1998 by the daily paper «Il Manifesto» and featuring the legendary Afro-American trumpeter Lester Bowie.
