Dawud Wharnsby with Red Sea Pedestrians at Dalton Theatre on Kalamazoo College campus on Nov. 16

Date(s) - Thursday, November 16, 2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Dalton Theatre, Fine Arts Building

A third generation Canadian with Scottish and British roots, Dawud Wharnsby’s recordings and reputation have established him as an institution in the realm of English language Nasheed (spiritual songs of a world-beat/folk style, drawn from Islamic cultural and musical tradition). Merging the Celtic/folk styles of his upbringing with sounds and embellishments of the Middle and Far East, Wharnsby’s unique lyrical style, warm voice and knack for penning catchy melodies have yielded a rich reception from his listeners worldwide.

Red Sea Pedestrians

Celebrating their 10th anniversary of creating wildly inventive music, The Red Sea Pedestrians are a full-blown, instrument-swapping fusion between tradition and the here-and-now. We’re talkin’ high-energy world-beat grooves, hypnotic laments from the earth, songs of celebration and wonder; a warped and beautiful blend of American Roots, Rock, Klezmer, Gypsy, Classical and Jazz, all filtered through the band’s original vision. The band is a melting pot of six distinct singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalists, almost a self-contained variety show. Their sound is first defined by the sweet interplay between clarinet and violin, further colored by a kaleidoscope of guitar, banjo, keyboard and mandolin, and driven by a rhythm section deep in the pocket. Multi-layered lyrics, rich harmonies, and masterful playing complete the experience. This is a band that can pull you in with a tender folk ballad, get you up and dancing to a ragtime jam, break into a frantic instrumental barn-burner, and then blow your mind with a heavy psychedelic rock freakout. The Red Sea Pedestrians are proud members of the Earthwork Music Collective, a group of artists who believe in the intrinsic and historical power of music to raise both community and self-awareness and serve to facilitate and encourage original music in the state of Michigan and beyond.
