Voted Austin’s Best World Music Band 2015-16, Rattletree dropped by Studio 1A to spread the electro-Zimbabwean vibes. Often described as “Blue Man Group meets Electronica“, Rattletree have dedicated their lives to learning the ancient rhythms of Zimbabwe’s people – the group actually spent years in the country to study the music and culture. By infusing these finely preserved rhythms with modern electronic production techniques, Rattletree delivers quite a unique musical experience that’s worth hearing.
Austinites can join the group in celebrating the Grand Opening of their new fully-immersive studio with a festival-style weekend of Glow Parties, September 23-25th. Information and tickets here. Listen to our conversation with the group and their performances below.
