KUHN FU Short Info

“Oh yeah, we are the KUHN FU.”
Four guys, four nationalities come together for one purpose: Groove. Groningen based psychedelic jazz band dedicates their music to all the lost souls, losers, and slackers.

KUHN FU is a multinational Jazz/Rock Band founded in Groningen in 2012 by former students of the Prins Claus Conservatory. The music is written by german composer/guitarist Christian Kuhn, the melodic work is done by Israeli bass clarinetist Ziv Taubenfeld and the rhythm section is driven by Serbian drummer Lav Kovac and Turkish bassist Esat Ekincioglu.

Heavy grooves, a wide dynamic range and lyrical melodies are the key elements of their music. Influences range from from 70s rock music to Duke Ellington to Peter Brötzmann, which gives the music a unique balance between postrock/noise, bluesy cliches and free improvisation. They have been touring in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, Israel, Denmark, Italy and Turkey; playing over 110 concerts

"...a band who can create the most genuinely paranoid, unhinged atmosphere, all black and blue, smokescreens and daggers in the dark, while still preserving a faint pulse of humor throughout the album"

''You can never get comfortable with any of the tracks and that is a good thing as this style of music is made to be radical and shifting under your feet. KUHNSPIRACY is not for the faint of heart, but adventurous music lovers may just get the right kick from their craziness.'' rockthebodyelectric

''Humor schwärzester Güteklasse, schaurig, witzig, spannend. Programmmusik im besten Wortsinn, zum Grinsen, zum Grübeln, zum Headbangen''
Jazzthing, Juni 2017

"From existentialism to metaphysics; this music has everything in it related to life"
