Saturday night features a performance by The Bhakti House Band followed by the new and innovative sounds of Desert Dwellers at the UH Recreation Center. Desert Dwellers has its roots in the Southern California dance collective known as Moontribe ... and tribal dance rituals at magical locations deep within the vast expanses of the New Mexico, Mojave, and Black Rock Deserts. A longtime collaboration between electronic music pioneers Amani Friend and Trevor Moontribe, Desert Dwellers is a "virtual band," using the internet as a collaborative space in which concept albums are created with cutting edge techniques that blend the modern edge of electronica with the ancient sounds of cultures past. Sydney Strahan and Dance Evolution will lead us into a Shakti tribal groove with Desert Dwellers Saturday night. (Remember the scene in The Matrix 3? Jenny’s dream to come true!)
