Six-piece Danish outfit Sunbörn, formerly known as The Kutimangoes, releases new single “Mankind? feat. Ida Nielsen & BIGYUKI”, the second track taken from their upcoming new album.
“Mankind?” is a powerful and energetic instrumental song full of deep horns and wild grooves. The song captures the duality of human nature, with its ability to be both kind and gentle, but also destructive and violent. The intense horns and driving beats represent the chaos and intensity of human behavior, while the underlying groove showcases our capacity for unity and harmony.
This song is a reminder of the incredible power of humanity, for better or for worse and its title signifies questioning what mankind really is as well as what we are doing to each other and the planet. It features Ida Nielsen from Denmark, who spent 6 years as part of Prince’s New Power Generation, who lays the foundation with a delicately funky bass part. While BIGYUKI (aka Masayuki Hirano) from Japan soars with a rousing and potent keyboard solo. Hirano is a virtuoso keyboard player based in New York City and a highly sought-after collaborator of Kamasi Washington, A Tribe Called Quest and Lauryn Hill, among others.
