After their two releases, “Untitled Yet” and “FUFU TRYOUT”, the collective Plurism led by drummer and collector of sounds, Dominic Egli, presents its third album: More Fufu! a colourful declaration of love to the African continent, its dishes and its dazzling music.
Plurism more or less transcends the realm of an imaginary African folklore and puts it in the context of the contemporary jazz idiom. With his dream line-up Christoph Irniger, Raffaele Bossard and the featured legendary South African trumpet player Feya Faku, Dominic Egli works with explosive coolness and earthy playfulness to create song-like melodies, complex and driving grooves and eruptive solos.
