Synopsis

Album Description
At the heart of Nation Beat's Legends of the Preacher lies a totally original 21st century fusion between thunderous Brazilian maracatu drumming and New Orleans second line rhythms, Appalachian-inspired bluegrass music, funk, rock, and country-blues. Their explosive live show -- which is frequently known to burst into crowd-wide Carnaval-style drumming and singing -- is attracting music fans from a wide demographic: bluegrass and country music fans, Brazilian music lovers, outdoor festival-goers, and pretty much anyone who loves to dance and loves great music. Legends of the Preacher also features three mesmerizing collaborations with 2007 GRAMMY(R) award winners The Klezmatics. The work with The Klezmatics further extends their work as world groove excavators and mad scientists, and the two groups connect sonically and spiritually to provide elegance, whimsy, charm, and soul to these groundbreaking fusions. Following in the path of Modiba's humanitarian relief efforts in Darfur, anti-malaria work with Malian star Vieux Farka Toure and overall commitment to the social and economic empowerment of Africa and its Diaspora, 10% of the proceeds from Legends of the Preacher will benefit Recife, Brazil-based NGO Corpos Percussivos, a school of music and culture for underprivileged youths.uctions and featuring three mesmerizing collaborations with 2007 GRAMMY award winners The Klezmatics is due out in July, 2008.
