Water Seed

Water Seed is a musical gumbo that recalls the ancestral strut and joie de vivre of the New Orleans' Tremé, the drama and ecstasy of the church's wailing floor, and the suited-up sophistication of jazz threaded with the party funk of Parliament.

They make sounds that hail from Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, and the red dirt South all at once. Their music simultaneously evokes all of the uncontainable energies and passions exploding from so many disparate musical legacies.
