Mango Rescue Team

Sheffield's Mango Rescue Team combine world music and the avant-garde, and aims to link traditional British psychedelic culture with Latin-American and African influences.

The result is a high energy 10-piece band augmenting a standard psych-rock set-up with horns, keyboards and extra percussion. They leap from calypso to funky merengue, from afrobeat to cumbia with flourishes of flamenco, samba, North African Rai, Central African rumba, mariachi and rock'n'roll all while switching languages. Big band tropical anarchy!
