An unconventional combination of instrumentation. World drumming meets hip hop. Jazz meets marching band. Classical meets folk. Parab Poet and the Hip Hop Hippies embody this vibration.
This collective has been creating quite a buzz these last few years. From touring Western Canada to playing many shows in their home province, they have gained supportive followers both far and wide. They have shared the stage with acts like Michael Franti and Spearhead, Delhi to Dublin and Abstract Rude. The group‘s diverse and energetic sound has captivated audiences in both intimate venues as well as festival stages.
Their self titled debut record ‘Parab Poet and the Hip Hop Hippies’ is set to be released December 16, 2016.
The album weaves conscious poems with mandolin melodies, folk inspired violin, jazzy trumpet and soaring vocals. The four part rhythm section and turntables keep the record rooted in hip hop. Each song invites you into a groovy listening experience. Their positive message and good vibrations will have you pushing repeat.
Featuring West Coast hip hop veteran Zion I, songs like ‘Connected’ reveal a depth to the Hippies’ song writing and powerful tag team lyricism. ‘Just Breathe’ highlights the spirited folk flavour in this collaborative crew.
