Lũpḁ Gang Gang Quartet
Lũpḁ Gang Gang Quartet
The Lũpḁ Gang Gang Quartet is a group that tries to connect extremes. Starting from a jazz-funk perspective, they want to achieve some form of "eclectism". They pay little attention to the artificial borders and together they make a road trip through the still uninhabited no man's land. Their live reputation is still intact. They always manage to find the balance between calm atmospheres and wild explosions, but what matters most is the constant enthusiasm and indomitable energy that lies between these young musicians.
