Markscheider Kunst (Маркшейдер Кунст) is a ska band from St.Petersburg, Russia. They play afro-rock, soukous, ska and reggae. Russian musical influences can be heard in their music as well. The band was founded in 1992 by geology students from St. Petersburg. The band has played shows in many countries, and opened for Manu Chao in Moscow in 2002.
MARKSCHEIDER (German) – mine surveyor, expert in subsoil and surface spatial and geometrical surveys and their subsequent rendition in plans, maps and sectional drawings used in mining and geological explorations. The band’s name contains no hidden meaning or secret references, and whatever stories they tell you, when asked what the name means and how it came about, they are pure fabrication and provocation. :)
The same can be said about the musical style and tastes of the band. Judging by the ruminations of various journalists trying to describe MKUNST and its music, to define precisely the band’s style is not an easy task at all.
