The six piece play a bizarre and exciting blend of Latin jazz, funk, Afro-beat, drum and bass, dub and Balkan styles, combining many of these elements in one song and often defying categorisation altogether. Each band member brings eclectic influences to the table. Portugese drummer Rodrigo Furtardo is knowledgeable in Clave, Samba, and Afro-Cuban rhythms, and adept in many other styles. Tim Scarlett, on bass guitar, shows the funk, soul and electronica influence in his playing, and completing the rhythm section is Ben Socrates, with his unique thrash jazz piano. Sean Jackson leads the agressive grooves on trumpet. Rania Bailey adds psychedelic flute, but has also been known to play clarinet, saxophone and sing at a typical Mulatones gig! Finally Emily Parker completes the sextet on lead vocals, saxophone and flute. The Mulatones are keen to collaborate and have worked with a beat-boxer/rapper, electronic musicians, percussionists and additional vocalists in the past.
