Mouktafi band, at the beginnings called “The Mouktafi Project”, was founded in 2002 by Riccardo Mantellini, Alessandro Longo, Simone Paschetto and Simone Stevanin in Torino, Italy. The name of the band was the surname of the former owner of Stevanin’s flat where the band was formed.
While several changes in the line-up took place during the years, the spirit of the band never really changed. Tha aim of the guys was mixing rock’n’roll tradition with new sounds and a unique testwriting combining different languages and talking about global issues including History, international Politics, Enviroment as well as human feelings towards the surrouding world and its cultures. The band moved for years in Torino’s underground culture with several concerts to its credit.
