Taking the artistic passion of eight individuals and making something that’s cohesive and without pretension can be a tall order. Mifuné knows this. The diversity of elements that make up this group is akin to spinning around and around in a record store stopping and pointing at random sections. The amalgamation of styles is nothing new in American music, and Mifuné hails from the true America, the gritty, post-industrial gem of a town, Cleveland, Ohio. This reality is fuel for the funky poly-rhythms, tight harmonies, soulful vocals and the blazing horns that create the irresistible pulse that marks the group’s compositions. Live, the group inspires an atmosphere as diverse as their components. Sure, the deep rooted grooves will make you dance, but it’s also all at once a joyful, thought-provoking, and passionate affair. With two albums out (afro-electronique 2006) and “Time is Watching Us” (nov 2008), Mifuné continues the quest to bottle their unique sound on wax. Along the path there have been some honors and awards, some notable shows and some peculiar moments, all of them befitting a hard working band on the road.
Most of the group’s journey is explained best, like everything else in life, inside the music.
Here is what the press is saying:
It goes without saying that each of the musicians in Mifune is talented, and it is this professional quality that allows the tracks to meander into different styles effortlessly and https://www.tradebit.comost every track could be neatly packaged as a single..."
-The Lakewood Observer
"The group has always made music that''s suitable for either listening or dancing; if anything, they''ve enhanced both sides of the equation with their intricate arrangements, sinuous melodies and thoughtful lyrics, coupled with insinuating beats."
-The Cleveland Scene
"the musical influences on the album are better subsumed into a more recognizable Mifune sound, and it''s a damn groovy one."
-The Akron Beacon Journal
