Freak Folk, Electronica and Psychedelia mix
I have been making music solo for 5 years. Now i want to play with others. The music i like comes under a kind of Globalized Folk Music sound where the percussion is really rich, polyrhythmic, syncopated, melodies and chords are unusual with a lot of jazz chord and minor and add9 sus7 crazy constellations. There are little influences from jazz, fela kuti, celtic folk, salsa, everything can make their way in, it's literal world music.
The other very very important thing is layered and active vocals, not just one singer but a group experience which means the band members have to sing too.
Influences: Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest, Hiatus Kaiyote, Kate Bush - Hounds of Love and The Sensual World albums, Bjork Vespertine and Homogenic albums.
If you have ever thought about what the folk music of today is then let's work together to create some!
