Twin Cities Heavy Hitters - Extreme Percussion: Savage Aural Hotbed with Batucada do Norte & Barinya
Take the driving intensity of Japanese Taiko drumming. Add the rhythmic precision of drum and bugle music. Then place it in a post-industrial setting, and you have Savage Aural Hotbed. The Minneapolis quartet has made a name for itself by banging out a wall of sound with such found objects as barrels, pipes and power tools. Savage Aural Hotbed turns 21 this year, and to celebrate, the band is holding a heavy hitting party at The Cedar!
The performance will include some of their new compositions, made possible by a grant from the Jerome Foundation, and some old favorites as well.
They'll be joined by Barinya, a West African drumming group based in Minneapolis, and Batucada do Norte, a community group founded by brothers Tim and Pat O’Keefe, and dedicated to studying and performing the many street drumming styles found in Brazil during Carnival.
