The eight-member collective has been standing for more than 15 years for party music at its best. GMF - Grand Mother's Funck is considered the most prestigious Swiss radio band and has fans of all ages and around the world (CD releases in the U.S. and Germany, airplay in the Bahamas and a fan club in Japan speak for themselves).
On tour and CD is in addition to GMF-singer Rich Fonje also Akil the MC. The rapper is known as a rhyme writer and founding member of iconic hip hop band Jurassic 5. A true "Master of Rhythm," from South Central LA here meets the inventor of the "Le Funck Fédéral". Coming from opposite corners of Black Music and the world their musical roots are the same. The collaboration is a real stroke of luck, the result is a fireworks display of funk, hip hop, R & B and Soul: a musical treat on record and on the stage a live class experience.
