Mahuki - UK Tour 2023

Mahuki is the Edinburgh-based passion project of Czech-born fusion guitarist Honza
Kourimsky, combining elements of jazz with Eastern European folk music, progressive rock, and modern-day funk. The band are on tour with the promotional campaign for their debut live album Live From The Living Room Set, released in full in May 2023. The album was captured in a one-of-a kind sell-out live studio gig/session at the Wee Red Bar in Edinburgh in December 2022, capturing the gaze of the Edinburgh music scene and establishing the acts as one of its most progressive music projects.

On drums plays Carter Skillicorn, bass is played by Cameron Bradley, tenor saxophone features Oskar Jones, Michael Butcher plays alto saxophone, and finally trumpet features Cameron Thompson-Duncan and Euan Allerdice who doubles on flugelhorn. The outfit is led by Honza Kourimsky on guitar.
