A dynamite force in world roots music, The Rhythm Hunters are coming to Wauchope Arts.
Adored for their frenetic drum choreographies and infectious dance grooves, The Rhythm Hunters bring cutting edge physical percussion, western horns, Asian flute, deep grooves and electro beats.
They’re one of Australia’s most exciting and fast growing popular live acts.
Their ground-breaking new world album brings together 10 years of the raw, love infused contemporary tribal sound of Rhythm Hunters.
The sound, heavily informed by Indonesian music comes together in a way that honours those roots, yet also launches forward into a world of no boundaries, where cultures and eras blend, meet, talk and ultimately become one.
The album title, It’s Always the Same, Till it’s Different… is a bit of a motto within the band - each piece of music is always on the chopping board for innovation and change.

They will have your toes tapping with their compelling new slant on African and Middle-Eastern grooves."
