Image: 1579915 Celebrated West Coast rhyme-slayer Murs, legendary Bad Brains bassist Darryl Jenifer and ego trip founder Sacha Jenkins SHR are THE WHITE MANDINGOS. The band’s output combines the collective musical experiences of these three men who hail from three distinct towns: Washington DC, Los Angeles and New York City. “As someone who has written about music for years, it’s easy for me to try to categorize our music and say that it sounds like this-meets-that, BUT, if you twist my arm, i might say that it’s kinda like heavy negro spiritual...” says Jenkins, who, as a scribe, has written for many a music publication. “And I will also say that Murs is one of the strongest writers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with in any medium and his voice can command a thousand armies. As for Darryl, founder of my favorite band of all time, his passion for, and knowledge of such a broad range of musics makes his touch on this project deadly.”
Bass, guitar, drums, vocals, hip hop, hardcore and dusted R&B come together to push a debut LP that takes the strengths of the band’s members into fresh, uncharted territories.
“As a fan of both artists, I feel honored to be a part of such a historic project,” Jenkins adds. “The truth about the White Mandingos is, people
who have heard it have had strong reactions to the songs--weather they dig them or not. And any time music can touch a nerve or a consciousness, that sound is on to something.” “Mandingo Rally” is the first physical offering from The White Mandingos, featured on a limited
edition Black/White split 7” exclusive for Record Store Day 2013.

1. First single from the group The White Mandingos comprised of Murs, legendary Bad Brains bassist Darryl Jenifer and ego trip founder Sacha Jenkins SHR.
2. Special split color limited 45 exclusive for Record Store Day Available from 20.04.2013
