Cavolo Nero is a six-piece band from Utrecht inspired by afrobeat and groove-oriented music. Their psychedelic grooves combine Indie and disco elements, delivering a lot of energy and an urge to dance along. They’ve played at venues such as EKKO, Paradiso Noord, and festivals like Mañana Mañana and Liberation Festival. In their first year, they performed 56 shows, including a sold-out EP release at Cinetol. They kicked off 2023 with a spot on Noorderslag and will release a new single ‘Mauna Kea’ in May. They have almost 30 shows and festivals planned for this year, including Zwarte Cross and Blijdorp. They plan to release a 2nd EP in early 2024, with a debut album coming in early 2025 for which they’ve already written 8 songs.
