“Punk-jazz” saxophonist Skerik channels Fela Kuti and Steve Reich

“Punk-jazz” saxophonist Skerik (Critters Buggin, Les Claypool, Garage a Trois, The Dead Kenny Gs) has channeled, seemingly in equal parts, Fela Kuti and Steve Reich for his newest project, Bandalabra. Built on “rhythmic and minimalist concepts,” the music is funky, danceable, and “also interesting to listen to.”

Catch the band across the northern USA this September, listen to “Beast Crusher” below, and pick up the band’s debut live album, Live at the Royal Room, digitally via The Royal Potato Family.
