KUHN FU is a paranoid prog punk jazz performance.

Does this sound weird?… Well we are still a hairy fish with legs that can climb a tree.

Christian Kühn (Germany)

is the German bandleader who moves like a rat on stage. He has been accused of schizophrenia by the jazz press and is constantly fighting a war against „the invisible jazz wall“. He talks a lot, on and off stage. In Berlin, he takes part in wild gatherings purely for social research, to have stories for his programmatic music.


Ziv Taubenfeld (Israel)

was born in Karmiel and recently became a father. Unfortunately it’s hard to argue with a father; that’s why he wins most arguments. Improvising on the bass clarinet is his way of being. He searches for the pure primitive that is free from time when leading ‘Full Sun’, a fairly large ensemble based on the Amsterdam impro scene.


Esat Ekincioğlu (Turkey)

has been trying to destroy his cheap pressboard bass since 2012. There is more duct tape on it than wood left. He is a true master of the „Electric Turkish Bass Solo“. Born in Istanbul one cannot judge him without having eaten his lentil soup. When not breaking things with KUHN FU, he leads AVA Trio, an ethnojazz trio that tours the world.


John Dikeman (United States)

Is a beast on the tenor sax. Some even say he’s the reincarnation of Albert Ayler. His ear shattering volume and intensity make him a great new asset to KUHN FU. His thick American accent almost make him a parody of an American cowboy who plays free Jazz.


Sofía Salvo (Argentina)

Sofía Salvo is a baritone sax player and improviser from Buenos Aires, currently living in Berlin. Her performances include a strong combination between acoustic noisy sounds and dark introspective melodies.


George Hadow (England)

comes from Devon, loves fish & chips and Indian music. He plays loud drums but is a quiet person by nature. On the Autobahn touring with Günther the van, you see him looking out the window, headphones on, tapping his fingers. We once asked him, “what music are you listening to?” He replied „not music, it’s a metronome“.
