Rhythm Hunters can't wait to come back to The Blue Mountains this May! 

Rhythm Hunters

A dynamite force in world roots music, adored for their frenetic drum choreographies and infectious dance grooves, Rhythm Hunters bring cutting edge physical percussion, western horns, Asian flute, deep grooves and electro beats, making them one of Australia’s most exciting festival acts.

Drawing from the cultures of northern Australasia, to the traditional folk songs of Indonesia, and the electro beats of cyber culture, Rhythm Hunters is a unique musical and visual act that easily slides into many genres including world, folk, groove, electronic and cultural genres.

Rhythm Hunters have played alongside acts such as Nahko and Medicine for the People, Evermore, Blue King Brown, and The Melbourne Ska Orchestra. Festival slots include The Woodford Folk Festival, Peats Ridge, The Dreaming, The National Folk Festival, National Multicultural Festival, Winter Magic, Psyfari, Moomba, Jungle Love Festival, Subsonic, Mullumbimby Music Festival, Island Vibes, Illawarra Folk Festival, Cygnet Folk Festival, Dragon Dreaming, The International Reggae Festival (Malaysia), Granite Town and more.

In late 2017 Rhythm Hunters look forward to releasing their highly anticipated new studio album produced by Nicky Bomba, and touring extensively around Australia and Indonesia throughout the year, including Rhythm Underground 2017 in Jenolan Caves.

Supporting Rhythm Hunters on the night is Sonori.
Formed in the music and art rich community of Katoomba, in the Blue Mountains of NSW, Sonori was the result of the unlikely convergence of an effects loving classically trained cellist, a post rock guru and an electronics junkie.

Beginning life as an instrumental three piece made up of looped cellos, guitars/keys and drum machines, they were then joined by an eclectically influenced singer taking their original compositions to a whole other level with an extensive set of lyrical themes and versatile singing techniques. They quickly discovered that their individual skills and complimentary differences blended with their shared passions and friendly natures, resulting in a musical style which fulfilled the promise of something special and unique.

Rich with soaring and shadowy vocals, thick layers of sound, and pulsing beats, they have been described as "Cinematic orchestral experimental journey music. Post rock you can dance to".

Appealing to both the outgoing dancers and the inward thinkers alike, they immediately captured people’s attention and the buzz that was created on the local scene following their first few shows confirmed that they were onto something.

With a front page feature in local street press 'The Haze Mag', and multiple appearances on community radio, local support continued to grow as they appeared on stage alongside acts as varied as Sydney post rock giants We Lost the Sea, and Melbourne beats oriented world music titans Tijuana Cartel. A trip to Psyfari festival in 2016 saw them playing a technicolour ‪Saturday night‬ set with a great response from the happy Psyfarians.

More recently the band spent two nights performing on the steps of Katoomba's iconic Carrington Hotel as part of the ‘Culturescape’ festival event, where their music provided a live soundtrack to the works of local artists projected across the face of the building as the band played.

This romantic origin story is represented beautifully on their debut self titled EP, which is due for release in May‪.‬ The recording serves as both an introduction to the band and a promise of much more to come.
