About this event

Dirtwire stands poised between ancient Mother Earth and modern technology, a blend of ethnomusicology and the psychedelic trance state, gut-bucket delta blues and what the band variously dubs back-porch space cowboy blues, swamptronica, and electro-twang. Its a sound informed by Dirtwires travels and performances around the globe, where East meets West and North joins South. From the favelas in Brazil, Femi Kutis Shrine in Lagos, Tokyos bluegrass clubs, Ayahuasca ceremonies in Central America, Gamelan performances in Bali, desert festivals in the Australian Outback, and the 20th anniversary of Kazakhstans modernized new capital Astana, the band spreads its message by building bridges across musical cultures in their own unique way.
