Flamingods are a five piece multi-instrumental experimental band originally started by Kamal Rasool in late 2009 as a bedroom project. Their sound has been described as ethnic pop, with elements of noise, tribal and freaked folk. They use a number of percussion instruments, some of which were collected during Rasool's travels to places like Tanzania and the Amazon. They are based in London, UK. The band’s story begins in Bahrain, where 4 of the 5 members (Kamal, Sam, Craig, and Charles) met. Upon moving to London they became friends with Karthik and so Flamingods were formed.
