CHICAGO–(ENEWSPF)–November 14, 2016. Hothouse’s Global Voices Series will continue on Sunday, November 20 at 4 p.m. with a performance by Painted Caves. The event will take place at the Alhambra Palace Restaurant, 1240 West Randolph in Chicago. The venue is wheelchair accessible and valet parking is available.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based Painted Caves have earned a reputation for their highly original, Arab-American music and mesmerizing live performances. Built on a foundation of Western experimentation and Middle-Eastern tradition, the group uses traditional folk and jazz instruments (oud, daf, trumpet, flute) as a base and focal point against a backdrop of hypnotic rhythm (guitar, bass, percussion) and dreamy, uplifting songwriting. Seamlessly melding shoegaze distortion with delicate microtones and vocal harmonies, their music transports the listener from the sands of the North African desert to the sunny beaches of Baja California and the great Ocean beyond, with infectious grooves and lyrical hooks keeping company on a musical journey that is inspiring, reflective, and celebratory.
The band’s self-titled debut release (released March 31st 2015 on Amarrass Records) has been a fixture on college radio stations in the US and was on the CMJ Charts in summer 2015, with radio plays on BBC, PRI, WBEZ, and many more.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $27 at the door. Buy tickets here.
