HAMSA LILA :: ORIGINS 2012 TOUR

Like mysterious, oceanic breezes blowing across the desert, HAMSA LILA is emerging for a rare, potent mini Northwest tour of special hand-picked rooms and dates. The group will be digging deeper than ever, down into its ancient trance funk roots, the origins of their musical influences. Plumbing far into spiritual realms, Hamsa Lila will be taking audiences on a journey to new worlds via ancient rhythms and timeless chants, while rolling out its very unique brand of deep and extended ‘healing music’ grooves, sure to leave everyone hot, sweaty, and smiling.

Starting off the tour with a double-header in Portland, the band will be highlighting a couple of music festivals nestled amid lush forests and lakes, then blessing up the greater Bay Area with two smaller club dates, before launching into its Grand Finale at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.

We highly suggest grabbing tickets for the club dates early, before word hits the street! These are strictly limited capacity rooms!

MORE INFO:

ORIGINS 2012, sponsored by NUTIVA Organic Superfoods, a company deeply involved in educating the public about the current GMO labeling issue. The tour will feature LIVE DUB MIXING by talented producer and slamming bassist YOSSI FINE, as well as guest Yoruba vocalist WUNMI (London/NYC), and drummer BILLY SHOES JOHNSON (Santana, MC Hammer).

Digging down into their traditional and cultural origins. the band will also be bringing in to their sets a fresh sound, utilizing the talented YOSSI FINE for Live Dub Mixing on the tour. A bass virtuoso (playing with legends like DAVID BOWIE & LOU REED), Yossi also is an accomplished producer who recently did an album with Mali guitarist VIEUX FARKE TOURE, son of legendary ALI FARKE TOURE. Yossi defined the band’s sound, producing HAMSA LILA’s first studio album GATHERING ONE, which went to the top of both the CMJ national chart and Canada’s Chart Attack World Music categories in 2005. HAMSA LILA’s music broke new ground, using a plethora of traditional instruments like the Moroccan bass-like sintir, the harp-like kamel ngoni from Mail, and the gangan, a Yoruba talking drum (to name just a few) along with hypnotic drum grooves, infectious vocal melodies and traditionally-based songs and chants in a modern format, accented with dub effects and electronic tweaks.

HAMSA LILA, known for its marathon trance-inducing sets, is excited to be working with their featured guest vocalist WUNMI, a Yoruba singer based in London and NYC, who is likened to “a female FELA KUTI” and also appeared on the Fela tribute album “RED HOT & RIOT.”

The ORIGINS 2012 TOUR and line up highlights the band’s full embrace of roots music. The resonance of the sintir, the guimbri (a N. African skinned lute), kamel ngoni, and organic percussion, woven with polyrhythmic grooves, creates an aural tapestry at the core of the HAMSA LILA signature sound. With the deep love for bass in modern music, HAMSA LILA brings forward the origins of bass in the three aforementioned stringed instruments, giving people a sense of the ancient – yet in a contemporary context: one that can also be termed as ‘trance’ music, but not in the electronic genre sense of the word. HAMSA LILA is connected directly to the original trance traditions found throughout the African diaspora, often associated with healing practices and spiritual ceremonies.
“At our shows, everyone – the band included – gets to fully experience the original meaning of the word ‘trance,’ says core band member MJ Greenmountain. “There’s a definite sense of being somehow transformed through the music. It’s a mystery even to us.”

A BENEFIT for WOMEN’s EARTH ALLIANCEROCK THE EARTH,  & TOUAREG WATER FUND

WATER OF LIFE brings attention to, and celebrates the efforts of leaders and volunteers dedicated to securing safe, drinkable water creating sustainable ongoing solutions for communities worldwide.

Water of Life will be a two-night flurry of awe inspiring performances, and a powerful ceremony of intention and healing.   Music serves as a conduit to channel energy, and in this case, towards protecting our natural water resources on the planet!

House of Hamsa – the production arm of Hamsa Lila – is putting together these two very special shows with a poignant theme – water!  With the current worldwide water crisis at hand as well as the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, this is one of the highest priorities on the planet needing to be addressed.

In addition to the potent messages that each of these inspiring bands bring within their music, this two night event also creates an historic connection between African nomads playing modern instruments of the West (electric guitars & effects) and contemporary Californian bohemians playing an array of traditional African instruments.  As each of these two ensembles is a serious force of inspiration in their own right, such a potent, and first-time combination poses a rare opportunity to create an exciting,  memorable  musical experience – surely to be talked about for years to come!


TINARIWEN (Mali)

Tinariwen are a group of Touareg nomads from sub-Saharan West African who’ve created an infectious, raw, mystical sound along with their striking desert attire of robes and head wraps, as chants and rebel songs lay over grungy blues guitars, bass, hand drums & percussion.  These desert rockers started out as freedom-fighters displaced by wars and dictatorships, deaths and disasters – and became icons for a whole social movement. It is said that every Touareg from Tamanrasset to Timbuktu is a member of Tinariwen, so widely are their songs known and treasured.  Tinariwen has been blazing through the global world music festival scene since they stole the show at the first Festival in the Desert (Mali, Africa 2001).  Over 700 gigs later, they have played Glastonbury, WOMAD, & Coachella, and their CD’s have been tearing up world music charts since their fan-wowing release in 2004 “Amassakoul”.   Big name fans like Santana, Robert Plant, Bono & the Edge, and Brian Eno reflect the truly unique and potent beauty of Tinariwen, who are currently one of the most popular and best selling African groups on the planet!

HAMSA LILA (USA)

“This is musical mysticism …. Call it trance. Call it spiritual. Call it otherworldly.  The effect is the same: bringing listener and musician to a higher place than before.” San Francisco Chronicle

Often referred to as ‘pioneers in the world fusion genre’, Hamsa Lila broke new ground with their inspired blend of traditionally influenced world fusion dance music.  Drawing primarily from the healing musics of North & West Africa, the group uses an onslaught of traditional instruments, including the bass-like lute called a ‘sintir’, the ngoni – a large gourd harp, the gan-gan – a talking drum, shakuhachi flutes, kalimbas, and assortment of percussion gear.  Ripping drum kit player Inkx Herman (Paul Simon, Sting, Habib Koite, Hugh Masekela) lays indelible grooves underneath male and female lead vocals that weave hypnotic harmonies amid various dub effects, electronics and patches.  Headlining famous halls like The Filmore (SF) and The Crystal Ballroom (Portland), and playing an array of  popular music festivals, including Earthdance, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, Shambhala (BC, Canada) and Harmony Music Festival, the band earned legendary status at Burning Man (2001 thru 2006) playing epic all-night shows in that Nevada white sand desert.  Their initial release “Gathering One” reached to #2 on CMJ’s National World Music Chart, as well as #2 on Chart Attack (Canada).  After a 3 year performing hiatus, the band is now hand picking mostly self or co-produced, benefit-based events that are pointed at social change, environmental activism, human rights and indigenous tribal support, dedicating itself to only doing highly conscious events, raising awareness, and supporting powerful causes.

DAVID STARFIRE (6 Degrees,SF) (Wed night)

DAVID SATORI (Beats Antique) (Thur night)

David received his BA in Music Performance and Composition in 2001 from California Institute of the Arts. He recorded and toured the West Coast with The Funnies, an instrumental, experimental quartet based in LA which put out two full length CD’s between 2001 and 2003. The Funnies figured out  how to run the bus on  recycled vegetable oil from restaurants. In 2003 David moved up to San Francisco and joined the 10 piece afrobeat band Aphrodesia.  In 2004 Aphrodesia made a historic trip from San Francisco to New York in his bus driving on 100% recycled vegetable oil,  to join the protest at the Republican National Convention and received national attention when USA Today featured the Bus and Aphrodesia on the cover of the USA Today’s Life Section. In 2006 the band made another historic trip to West Africa where the band toured through Ghana, Benin Togo and Nigeria, ending their tour by performing two nights with Femi Kuti at the New Afrika Shrine. David also promoted the use of Bio-Fiuels on this trip and made appearances on Ghana national TV speaking about the issues of alternative fuels.  In 2007 David helped form Beats Antique, a trio bringing together Tommy Cappel from the Yard Dog Roadshow and Zoe from The Indigo Bellydance Company and Miles Copelands Bellydance Superstars, and released their first album on CIA records. Beats Antique has been touring the US in the past year and have received wide acclaim for their unique sound and presentation. Growing like wildfire under the canopy of live electonica and world roots music comes Beats Antique, a masterful merge of modern technology, live instrumentation and seductive performance.

Hamsa Lila Music is NASA approved!

1 Comment 27 February 2010

I think this is pretty funny, and well, as someone in awe of both inner and outta space, it’s pretty cool too! Yes in order to play YURI’s Night, where Hamsa Lila will close the HANGAR stage from 10pm-12am on April 10th. Read more here We had to be approved by NASA! I think HAMSA LILA music even though it is very EARTH based, playing instruments of GOAT, CAMEL, COW, FISH, BAMBOO, TREE….we do travel the inner and outta realms of space.

AND we have always had an affinity for the Ancient Astronauts! (so cool a band started with this name… check them out here I think not only would Humans traveling at 16,000 MPH in a shuttle or hanging at the space station dig some Hamsa Lila… but what would some other “aliens” dig… what are they trance -ing on… I know some of you think you know… synths seems to get close right? Add trust me i dig me some synths, love em, and look out for more in the Hamsa experience.. But..some of the most alien other worldly sounds I have ever heard or created were made 100% acoustically with 3 of us using our voices to resonate cymbals across the room.

So…as we rocket off into orbit following the infinite sunset… I will leave you with some music by a band called “YOU” that was made up of 3 of the original HAMSA LILA members (Beryl-Brett Jacobson, Vir McCoy, John Schroeder + Patrick and Justin of Rosin Coven)
