Cawama, David Ward
Polyrhythmics return to the Rickshaw! Creating vivid instrumental imagery using complex rhythms and a unique precision that redefines the term “funk” for 21st Century audiences the 8 piece Polyrhythmics are proving to be one of Seattle’s finest exports.
With a hard-driving modern afro-psycho-beat sound composed of relentless rhythm, heart thumping bass lines, intricate guitar phrasings, avalanches of keyboard colors, melodic hooks and soaring horn solos the octet delivers a live experience to behold that immediately turns any joint into a funky dance party.
With the recent release of Octagon, the band begins another chapter to the story that began just 5 years ago as they continue to grow with a singular sonic muse of progressive and dynamic stature.
Cawama is a surf/punk garage/rock revivalist band formed in Vancouver, BC combining influences of 80s and 90s garage rock with a 70s and 80s old school punk.
