My new project with my friend is singing Kiko Pereira: KiMiKus

KiMiKus is the new jazz project that combines the resonant sounds of Prof. Mikelius (double bass player Miguel Ângelo) with vocals by the enigmatic Dr. K (singer Kiko Pereira).

The duo presents their debut album “Modus Novos”, which promises to be a sublime collection of poetic compositions, illustrated with a mini story in the form of a comic strip created with photos by Anabela Trindade and drawings by Yasmin Machado.

«Mazam creates a true synergistic effect. Indeed, the whole is much greater than the sum of the individual parts...» by Mark Corroto on All About Jazz

«These creative bursts—eccentric vignettes of love affairs between dissonance and melody—have an idiosyncratic quality that any ensemble would love to match.» by Dave Sumner on The Best Jazz on Bandcamp: April 2022

«It’s difficult not to approach the second release from the Portuguese group Mazam...both recordings have the feel of a band that has devoted time to developing as a unit and embarking on “ an adventure through the lands of creative and improvised music .” In any case, the set offered here makes clear why these musicians are in such demand.» By Jim Marks on
