Polyrhythmics and Ghost Note have announced a 10-date co-headline tour that kicks off on April 7 in Denver and takes both ensembles through familiar west coast markets culminating with the Soul'd Out Music Festival in Portland and a finale in Polyrhythmics' hometown of Seattle at Nectar Lounge.
Rich with bold brass and hypnotic percussion, Polyrhythmics' latest album, Caldera, showcases the instrumental eight-piece's impossibly tight grooves and virtuosic musicianship as they tear through a singular blend of funk, soul, psychedelic rock, R&B, progressive jazz, and Afrobeat. Calling to mind everything from Antibalas and the Dap-Kings to The Meters and Fela Kuti, it's without a doubt their strongest work to date, merging the infectious power of their live show with a sleek and nuanced studio sophistication.
Multi Grammy Award-winning artists Robert 'Sput' Searight and Nate Werth take percussion out of the shadows and into the spotlight with their new project, Ghost-Note. World renown for their ongoing catalog with international sensation Snarky Puppy, this dynamic duo expands their rhythmical voice into a celebration of music in all its forms. This is music that takes listeners on a mind-blowing journey, inspired by the influences of James Brown, J Dilla and Beastie Boys, all the way to folkloric West African, Afro-Cuban, and Brazilian samba grooves.
