OK, now just in case you don't remember us,
Mixtape from Mars is a loose techno tribal collective specializing in
from homemade and store-bought instruments. You might hear vocal
throat singing, didgeridoo, the toob, drum & bass rhythms, and drones.
So your buddy just got back from the club scene on Mars; brought you
a mixtape. Check this out: they got killer vocal percussion (that
guy can *sing* jungle rhythms), overtones and deep throat singing, a
didgeridoo player, some guy chanting into a 12 foot long silver toob,
phunky samples. Yow! what else.
At this show:
Andrew Chaikin's vocal percussssion and kargyra snort singing
Barbara Jaspersen sings soprano vox
Achut Reddy plays didges and flutes
Simran pulls his tablas out of storage, and
built a blue man organ just for this show.
Rob Penn will be bringing us his inimitable muted air trumpet
Deborah Ben-Elizer joins us for the first time with her vocal jams.
And we hope we manage to convince John Cornwell to
come and play the tooob.
