Digital Primitives are both modern and ancient, explorers and researchers, deeply grounded in the past while carving out a new path into the future. The trio dig deep to unearth the roots of American music, fusing a new sound from free jazz, blues, funk, folk, with accents from the music’s African antecedents.
The goal for Digital Primitives is not to go farther out, but to harness the energy and emotional content of free jazz to power something far more direct and accessible.
