What do you call a musical gumbo that recalls the ancestral strut and joie de vivre of the New Orleans’ Tremé, the drama and ecstasy of the church’s wailing floor, and the suited-up sophistication of jazz threaded with the party funk of Parliament? What do you name sounds that hail from Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, and the red dirt South all at once? How do you label music that simultaneously evokes all of the uncontainable energies and passions exploding from so many disparate musical legacies? Here we call it Water Seed. Their Crazy Horse performances have been the talk of the town over the last two years. When people compare a transcendent concert experiences to going to a place of worship, this is the kind of thing they’re referring to. The volume of entertainment and awe generated by Water Seed is immeasurable!
