MP3 Kaliband - Son of an Oracle

Kaliband cooks up sizzling pepper pot of rock and world grooves, funk ''n'' soul and more in a combination of playful innuendo and political consciousness that has earned them comparisons to Bob Marley and The English Beat.

10 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Funk Rock, WORLD: World Fusion

Founded where the California sun makes for fun, Kaliband cooks up a sizzling musical pepper pot of rock, world beat, funk, and soul that warms the heart and makes your body move. This energizing fusion with a host of influences from the Caribbean, Africa, et cetera follows naturally since their influences are as varied as The Equals, The English Beat, Bob Marley & The Wailers, James Brown, Fela Kuti, and The Mighty Sparrow, among others.

Born and raised in Guyana (formerly British Guiana) before moving to the USA, bandleader and songwriter Son of an Oracle (Son or SOAO [so-ow] for short) takes his name in homage to his father, leader of one of Guyana''s most famous vocal groups, The Oracles. The name Kaliband (Caliband in its previous incarnation) is also a fusion: Kali, a female avatar of Shiva, Lord of the dance, the rhythmic life cycle of creation and destruction; Caliban, the Afro-Caribbean slave from Shakespeare''s The Tempest; California, where the band formed (members are products of CalArts''s prestigious music program).

Released on the independent Sugarcane Records, Kaliband''s debut CD "Son of an Oracle" is a stirring confluence of these elements. The intelligence in the songs'' lyrics and the understated musical arrangement and production keep you interested by unfolding slowly, revealing more textures upon subsequent listens. Uplifting and upbeat, even through blistering social commentary on songs like "Free" and "Bond is My Word," "Son of an Oracle" foretells a bright future for Kaliband.
