Insect Orchestra- Friday, April 15 @ Phoenix

Prince Enoki’s Insect Orchestra is a 9 piece afro-space-jazz ensemble, led by me: bassist and throat-singer Scott Peterson. Inspired by worldwide indigenous music and the earth’s natural soundscapes, the Insect Orchestra takes listeners from Asia to the Amazon, with a stop in Africa along the way. Amazonian grass bundle, glass bottles and tambouras blend with upright bass, overtone singing, interlocking guitars, deep drums, percussion, tuba & baritone saxophone to evoke long nights in a smoky jungle.
