The most distinctive characteristic of Huun-Huur-Tu’s music is throat singing, in which the singers sing both the note (drone) and the drone’s overtone(s), thus producing two or three notes simultaneously. The overtone may sound like a flute, whistle or bird, but is solely a product of the human voice. Founded by Sasha Bapa, his brother, Sayan, and two other musicians, Kaigal-ool Khovalyg and Albert Kuvezin Huun-Huur-Tu focus on the performance of “old and forgotten songs.” Huun Huur Tu has collaborated with musicians from many genres, such as Ry Cooder, Frank Zappa, The Chieftains, Johnny Guitar Watson, the Kodo Drummers, The Moscow Art Trio, ETC.

For over 20 years, Macy Gray has gained acclaim globally on the music scene. This R&B, jazz and soul singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, and actress, is best known for her distinctive raspy voice, and a singing style heavily influenced by Billie Holiday. With over 25 million record sales worldwide, Gray has been overturning fan expectation and industry formula since kicking off her music career with her debut 1999 CD, On How Life Is. That musical calling card spawned the classic single “I Try,” and both the CD and single were massive global hits which kicked off a streak of success including two Grammys, two MTV awards and a thriving acting career. Her 10th studio LP, Ruby, was released in fall of 2018.

Audiences will feel that too as she brings the record to life nightly in Europe on her 2018 tour. In the end, RUBY represents Macy Gray at her most passionate, poetic, and powerful.

“I hope that I can make them smile and make them reflect. I love when fans reach out with stories of how I’ve inspired, influenced them, or helped them get through a moment in their life. I want them to take away sincerity, honesty and authenticity. I’m hopeful that I am providing them with something that is meaningful and thoughtful. I’m still looking at how I can contribute more artistically and as a human. This is one way.” - Macy Gray.

A gifted songwriter and dazzlingly singular singer, Macy Gray has been overturning fan expectation and industry formula since kicking off her music career with her debut 1999 CD, On How Life Is. That musical calling card spawned the classic single “I Try,” and both the CD and single were massive global hits. They kicked off a career ride that includes two Grammys, two MTV awards, over 15 million units sold, and a thriving acting career.

What awards and sales figures fail to illustrate is the depth and breadth of Macy’s artistry. In an industry that is increasingly stifling of real artists, she’s forged her own vision, creating music that leaps genre barriers from experimental soul to alternative rock, from retro-disco to hip-hop. Her artistic integrity and innovativeness has won her fans across the world, including artists such as John Frusciante, Erykah Badu, Gang Starr, Mos Def, and Pharoah Monche, all of whom have collaborated with her.

BINKBEATS

A multi-instrumentalist who plays 50 instruments live!

Frank Wienk spent a good chunk of his lifetime studying the relationship between object and sound. Predominantly, his well-honed and peerless prowess of virtually any type of drum or percussion instrument served the artistic vision of others. As Binkbeats, Wienk snowballs his wide-eyed relationship to sound into a fully-formed, highly personal brainchild.

Binkbeats previously made his mark with the Beats Unraveled series, which found him translating such paragons as Flying Lotus, Aphex Twin and J. Dilla to acoustic, tangible realms. And impressively enough, Beats Unraveled achieved this feat without sacrificing the amorphous nature of the respective original works. Utilizing a vast collection of instruments – ranging from vibraphone, guzheng (Chinese harp) and yes, even typewriters – Wienk rapidly gained an impromptu following. To him, however, Beats Unraveled marked an exploratory phase of how to recreate certain sounds with his own instruments and gear.

Now composing his original material, Wienk began stretching his sonic purview beyond just his vast array of percussion, and completely disregarding any parameters. As a matter of fact, the first creative spark arose by bringing harmonics and voice into the mix. As a result, Binkbeats has become Wienk’s beautiful limbo where his influences bleed into each other freely, intuitively and fearlessly.

Cavernous, four-to-the-floor club sprawlers, widescreen pop euphoria and brooding drone workouts all orbit Binkbeats’ all-embracing vision. The common thread of it all: to spawn something surreal out of the earthly. On stage, Wienk naturally surrounds himself with a dazzling amount of toys, instruments and gear: a physical performance that ranges from daredevil to introspective, exploring a nexus of possibilities.

Binkbeats, with its confluence of aural whims, is – remarkably so – the work of one individual.

A key member of the California soft rock scene in the 70’s, Ned Doheny reached cult status thanks to his 1976 album Hard Candy which featured anthemic numbers such as ‘Get It Up For Love’, ‘To Prove My Love’ and ‘A Love Of Your Own’.

Ned Doheny is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist from Malibu, California who has recorded five albums as well as performed on many albums by other artists including Don Henley and Glenn Frey of the Eagles, J.D. Souther, Linda Ronstadt, and Jackson Browne, with whom he was once in a band. Ned Doheny now lives in Silverlake, California.

Though often categorized as a West Coast artist because of his Los Angeles roots and association with other West Coast artists, Doheny’s music defies exact categorization, being variously described as pop, funk, jazz and AOR. He’s been compared to Steely Dan and the Eagles.

São Paulo’s acclaimed 10-piece instrumental collective return for their 4th album. Urban Afro-Brazilian grooves, empowered horn-driven melodicism and massive dance floor inspiration. One of South America’s most exhilarating musical propositions.

​Almost four centuries after the first slave ships loaded their cargoes and set sail, the connection between Brazil and West Africa remains firm and deep. It was African slaves who created the culture of Brazil in all its sorrows and its joys, and those memories have flowed down through the generations. Africa is everywhere in Brazil, and it pulses through the music on Quebra Cabeça (Puzzle), Bixiga 70’s second studio album for Glitterbeat, where two continents dance together across the black Atlantic.
