Disaster Relief Music with Dr. Peter Larson

. November 12, 2019.

Disaster Relief is a local jazz-funk fusion project that seeks to provide solace from the harshness and negativity of the world. The group features musical artists, including rising stars of the Detroit, Ann Arbor area jazz scene. Inspired by funky innovators, such as James Brown and Fela Kuti, the group incorporates a dynamic four-piece horn section along with syncopated percussion and tight, yet free, jamming improvisational compositions.

Dr. Peter Larson and his group perform spaced out, swirling rhythmic music based around Larson’s electrified nyatiti, the 8-string Kenyan lyre. Along with Fred Thomas’s ambient guitar, Mike List’s drums and percussion, the listener rides a soul sonic journey. For this performance they will be joined by Dave Sharp on bass and vocalist Kat Steih.
