Galactic - Robert Mercurio, Ben Ellman, Jeff Raines, Ben Vogel, Stanton Moore
wsg Smokey Waters
Live at Soul Kitchen February 8
92ZEW is proud to present Â one of the modern greats of the Big Easy, Galactic with Corey Henry (Of Living Colors) on vocal duties. The band hits the road for the Freeze Out Tour 2013 supporting their latest funkifried release Carnivales ElectricosÂ which is inspired by the full-on Mardi Gras experience, from preparations to celebrations to the stillness of Ash Wednesday, but being Galactic, they got to add that luscious lagnaippe. This time it’s a bevy of beats from other places that lay it out on Mardi Gras day, like Brazil.
Like they say, ‘this ain’t your Daddy’s Mardi Gras music.’
Sure it’s loaded with those booty-shakin’, get down to the sounds raucousness, but don’t confuse it with your typical Mardi Gras soundtrack. Galactic reaches out and incorporates other worldly influences, specifically, Rio, you know, where the other big celebration is, Carnaval. Â Adding the Brazilian rhythms with the NOLA rhymes, Galactic proves another time, this ain’t your daddy’s Mardi Gras music. Mystikal, Manny Fresh, Cyril and Ivan Neville, Al ‘Carnival Time’ Johnson, and the KIPP Renaissance Marching Band all guest on this spicey, hot new Mardi Gras soundtrack. You best get it on your player.
Even better, live it live at Soul Kitchen during Mardi Gras season.
