avatar for Basketball


Basketball; an energetic four piece driven by live electronics, spirited vocals, and massive percussion create an inclusive primal sound that grows into pulsating dance beats. Their live performances, like rituals, induce mass dancing through catharsis, roping bodies into possession with their fierce beats, and sparkling with eastern melodies. Their cargo: drum machines, a constellation of percussion, zurna, Persian santur, electric guitar, sub upon sub, and voice upon voice. The combination of their sound has drawn comparisons to Modeselektor, Gang Gang Dance, Buraka Som Sistema, The Joker and Tinariwen.
