'Mozart has the blues' (Mhdb = abbreviation, 'Mozart has the blues' = 'Mozart hat den blues', English translation), Kassel (Germany), is an avant-garde jazz & absurd rock band.

The virtual Mhdb twin, Bambulete, performs the self-created 43 Mhdb songs (the Mhdb standards) in a largely atonal & percussive style; exceptionally live: drumming tips, quarantine solo project.
