MLIMA
MLIMA
Emerging from Denver, CO, MLIMA (pronounced-Mmm-Lee-Ma) is a premier jazz fusion ensemble that has established itself on the forefront of the Rocky Mountain’s ever-emerging music scene. Quite literally, “MLIMA” is the Swahili word for “mountain,” which is fitting for a band who self-describes their music as “Mountain Groove.” On September 29th, MLIMA will release their first proper studio effort — a self-titled 7-track record — over a year in the making.

The group is comprised of vocalist Jessica Jones, saxophonist and vocalist Zach Simms, guitarist Jeph Kennedy, bassist Ryan Thrush, percussionist Jack Breitenbach and drummer Lance Croucher. Since their 2012 inception, MLIMA have built a local fan-base through a relentless live schedule. Already, MLIMA has performed headlining dates at the legendary Bluebird Theatre in Denver, as well as the Fiske Planetarium in Boulder, CO. In their time together, the band has graced the main stage at Arise Music Festival, opened for renowned acts such as Shpongle and The Disco Biscuits at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheater, and supported acts like Praang (featuring members of String Cheese Incident), Nigel Hall of Lettuce and many more.

This coming September, MLIMA will release their self-titled debut comprised of 7 original tracks that were written, recorded and produced by the band. The self-titled release features the core group of the MLIMA bringing in Ben Rafferty on keyboard. According to Live For Live Music, MLIMA creates, “ a unique style and sound that incorporates roots in funk, rock, jazz, soul, Afro-beat, jam, and popular culture, and compels even the most stubborn of wallflowers to head to the dance floor and bust a move.”
