"a glorious band from Mozambique... infectious and charming" **** Robin Denselow, The Guardian "Bright sun-drenched music with enough edge to keep your mind as well as your feet engaged." (outstanding) Howard Male, The Independent "Harnessing their popularity to fight poverty, Massukos make music that is not only phenomenally beautiful but also a powerful force for change" Rita Ray Described by one fan as "musical sunshine – life-giving, happy music that makes you want to dance", Massukos offer a unique and uplifting blend of traditional sounds from Mozambique. Massukos' debut album went gold and their second album Bumping – featuring jazz legends Harry Beckett and Steve Buckley – is steadily garnering accolades by the likes of Andy Kershaw, Charlie Gillett and Michael Eavis. The band are considered national treasures in their native country, renowned both for their stunning music and the humanitarian work that they do. By day, the leader of Massukos, Feliciano dos Santos, is the director and founder of the NGO Estamos (a WaterAid partner); by night he is the guitarist of one of Mozambique's most revered bands.

He is affectionately known by his many fans as "the Elton John of Mozambique". Originating from Niassa in northern Mozambique, one of the poorest parts of Africa, the band use their high profile to initiate social change. They are passionate about their development work and regularly travel for miles to remote villages to deliver life-saving messages about hygiene, sanitation and HIV/AIDS. Read more on Last.fm.
