Snarky Puppy has gone from an underground secret to one of the most internationally respected names in instrumental music. They putt on a live show unparalleled in energy, virtuosity, and musicianship. They seamlessly fuse a deep knowledge and respect for musical tradition with sonic and conceptual innovation in a way that is able to reach the most critica l- or most carefree – audience. It is, in its physical makeup, a group of musicians from two different cultures and traditions – jazz and rock kids from white America, and gospel/R&B kids from black America.
This convergence, which occurred while the band was in its adolescence at the University of North Texas, has naturally established a series of combinations and a system of balance that instantly draws listeners to the music- raw funk and sensitive dynamics, relentless pocket and lyrical melodicism, lush harmony and soulful simplicity, and most importantly, a delicate mixture of composition and improvisation.
