After playing several instruments in several projects over the years I have stumbled upon a sound that I am proud to call Mandaku. At its core Mandaku isn't far from what I have always done, only this time the sound is lead by an Irish Bouzouki or Mandolin. Such instruments instantly give the music a sort of compelling brightness to what might have been something more aggressive. At first listen you might say it’s some sort of Alternative Folk music. And you might be right. But let it be known that Mandaku is not born of folk. Its influences would more likely include genres of the Chiptune, Progrock, MTV unplugged variety. The stripped down version, called Mandaku Instrumentals, features only a mandolin and acoustic guitar and lends itself quite nicely to more formal affairs and wedding ceremonies. The full band experience however is so versatile that it is able to play harmoniously alongside musical outfits of countless backgrounds and styles. Either way I believe it safe to say that both Mandaku’s music and its performances are inspired and finally ready to be heard.
