Saturday, July 13th, 2019 Yas/Whetzel will play their first ever show in the United States in Seattle, WA at the iconic Re-bar!
For the Whetzel set James has some new break dancing tempo beats he’ll be playing live palm wine style guitar over, and then he’ll grab his electric sarod and play his hits. Which will include his covers of Psychic City, Beat and the Pulse, and his tunes International Bossa, God Rest Ye Funky Bhangra, and Washington State.
Das Dhoom is reuniting as a duo of Sebastian Lange on violin and beats, and yours truly, James Whetzel, on electric sarod and beats. This will be Das Dhoom’s first performance in 8 years. Definitely something to see and hear. Das Dhoom is what happens when the industrial beats and classical music of Berlin meet Hindustani classical music and Bollywood and Bhangra.
Yas / Whetzel is the dynamic duo of French poet/rapper Yas with James Whetzel. Yas’s vocals are in French and English, and the music is all over the map with hip hop, indie, dancehall, highlife, congolese rumba, tabla, dhol, and middle-eastern beats in the mix.
