10. Lublin Jazz Festival / KUTIMAN ORCHESTRA (IL)


Kutiman (Ophir Kutiel) is a true phenomenon – a musician, composer, producer, and a pioneering video artist. Kutiman Orchestra – a super group band offering an amazing afro psych jazzy adventure and were best describe by Ben Shalev, a music critique, Haaretz as follows:  “Kutiman Orchestra plays “between the tight and mind blowing groove of James Brown and the psycho-cosmic Jazz of San-Ra…. Intoxicating effect on the verge of being psyho-active.” In 2009 Kutiman released his groundbreaking project, Thru-You where he mixed dozens of unrelated YouTube videos. More than 11 million pages views to date. Time Magazine included Thru-You in their 50 best inventions of 2009. 2014 follow up project “Thru You Too”. The first single, “Give It Up” has reached over 1 million views in less than a week. Kutiman’s musical visions find an artistic vent in his original collective – the Kutiman Orchestra. Their music is a psychedelic jazz-funk, running out in their aesthetic search through the rhythmic notes of Afrobeat to futuristic sounds like from science fiction movies. Must experience that!
