Polyrhythmics – bold, funk rhythms at Orcas Center

Submitted by Orcas Center

Polyrhythmics are coming to Orcas! Originating from Seattle’s underground deep funk scene, this high-energy band comes to the Orcas Center Main Stage on Saturday, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m.

Polyrhythmics combine impossibly tight grooves with bold brass and hypnotic percussion that showcase elements of R&B, progressive jazz and Afrobeat. With over 13 years as a recording project and touring ensemble, the band’s sound continues to evolve following six full length albums, several EPs and live releases. The virtuosic musicianship and musical conversation built on a relentless touring schedule of the previous decade has led them to a brand of psych-funk that fills a room with an impending mood where anything could happen – sometimes evoking their brighter and cinematic Fela-influences, but also a more sinister and darker turn toward a more progressive sonic palette. Don’t miss this display of sublime rhythmic awesomeness at Orcas Center!

Ticket prices range from $15-$59. Call 360-376-2281 ext 100, or visit www.orcascenter.org for tickets and more information.
