Biography

There are two bands with this name:

1)A NY-based funk band in the ’70s.

2)A Croatian rock band, later changed their name to Mandrili


1. An eclectic band from Brooklyn, NY most often categorized as “funk”, though their influences range from rock, blues, jazz, and African and Latin music as well. Their early albums (Mandrill, Mandrill Is, Composite Truth, Just Outside Of Town, and Mandrilland) are sometimes wild and experimental and sometimes danceable and fun, often times both at once. Their approach is somewhat comparable to early Funkadelic. Like Funkadelic, by their 1975 album called Solid they had settled into a smoother, more traditional funk sound, losing much but not all of their progressive edge.

2. Croatian band “ManDrill” started their version of alternative-funk in 1997. In 1998. they won an unsigned band contest “Ri Rock”, and started gigging frequently. ManDrill music changed through the years and document of that is debut album “Embryo” (2002).
After a few lineup changes, the band finally released their second album, “P” in 2006, havig a very succesful hit, “Ljubio, valjao”. With the popularity came the lawsuit for the name - that’s when ManDrill had to change the name to Mandrili. Under that name they released their third and most succesful album (ranked top five Croatian albums for 2008) “Tibet”. They’re still very active with the following lineup: Kristian Ćoza - Vocals, Tomislav Radinović - Guitars, Robert Jovanović - Bass, Dalibor Peršić - Drums

    Huge shout out to "Mandrill" from Boston Massachusetts (Roxbury!)! We love you here in Beantown and would love to have you come back!. We haven't seen you since the 1970 in Boston. Your music is timeless and even now when I listen to it it never looses it's flavor. All I need is a word and I am front and center when you come. Just wanted to let you guys know you are still loved and crave your music. Others may imitate, but no one can touch you guys. Please find a way to come to Boston... Please! (:->
