"This octet delivers a huge sound ... which usually requires a minimum of fifteen musicians to achieve. Zitakula can proudly continue its victory march along the summer festivals with this more than festive album." - OOR
"Oasis is a debut to be proud of. ... It has an irresistible live feel that would make even the toughest non-dancer begin to move. ... An awesome encounter with band which sounds inspired and driven. " - Written in Music
"Excellent music for the upcoming festival season. You won't be able to sit still with this band!" - Musicmaker

Zitakula is equal parts high-energy funk and a hypnotic trip around the southern hemisphere.

In the past three years, Zitakula has played over a hundred shows at dozens of festivals with their own infectious brand of funk, afrobeat and tropical grooves, setting thousands of feet loose on the dance floor in nearly a hundred shows. They played at Oerol, Noorderslag, Wicked Jazz Sounds Festival, Zwarte Cross, 22Fest, Summer Jazz, Valkhof Festival, Welcome to the Village and Noorderzon, Paradiso and de Melkweg, among others—and were featured in radio show 'Spijkers met Koppen' and twice in Dutch television show De Wereld Draait Door.

In September 2016, the band was transformed by the arrival of vocalist Sandy Miessi Bakomi. In four months they wrote and recorded their debut album Oasis—released in April 2017 with a sold-out show in Amsterdam's Paradiso. The record mixes authentic afrobeat, raw funk, and steaming psychedelic soul into an explosive cocktail.

Oasis was produced by Wiboud Burkens (Jungle By Night, Zuco 103, Benjamin Herman) and recorded in Schenk Studio, Amsterdam. The artwork for the album was made by Amsterdam-based designer duo Machine.

Get ready to check out Zitakula's brand new sound at festivals and shows throughout the Netherlands.
