Superkali

Superkali plays Afrifunk: a distinctively organic, American take on the hypnotic poly-rythmic style of the godfather of Nigerian Afro-beat, Fela Kuti. Drawing on its members' collective backgrounds in funk, jazz, and world music, Superkali's original material burns a groove unlike any other band in the Northwest. If Fela Kuti, James Brown, and John Coltrane could of had a musical child together it would have been Superkali. Made up of professional touring veterans Tracy Ferrara on tenor saxophone (Swamp Mama Johnson) and Terrance Stearns on trombone (Spirit House), Cornish composer/guitarist Bill Patton, and the dynamic rythm section of L,.A.'s native Ross brothers (Stephan on bass and Rachman on drums), Superkali now reigns the Northwest music scene as a roaring lion of the cool groove school. Superkali's credo:

YOU MAY LISTEN, BUT YOU WILL DANCE!
