LOOP THE MOON bring their special blend of funky house and soulful Latin jazz with percussive keys, irresistible grooves and vibrant vocal harmonies to create an uplifting set of original tunes, instant melodies and inspiring lyrics delivered with warmth and passion.
The songs tell stories of hope and liberation, personal and collective struggles, natural highs, positive vibes, challenges and celebrations, embracing many musical genres and carried along with stylish rhythms and beats.
All kinds of influences flow through the music from acid jazz to electro funk to rare groove to swing to gospel to techno and reminiscient of Moloko, Jamiroquai and Incognito.
