Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Dialect Trio play funky, energetic music that knows no bounds. International influences prevail without their mixture sounding like “world” music. Employing their back grounds and rooting in Blues, Rock and Funk to explore genres ranging from Afro-Beat to Chicha (psychedelic, surf inspired Cumbia from Peru), using a world of sounds and textures as they see fit, in no attempt to mimic traditional forms though with a great respect for the musical originators they emulate. Deceiving name aside, they have a formidably large sound, using live looping, percussion programming, and a roster of constantly changing guest horns and percussionist to bolster their interactive, synergetic playing as a trio of Drums, Bass and Electric Guitar.(Robby Astrove, Matt Mansfield, Russ Bledsoe)
