Subterranean trance-like movements of afro-beat mashed-up with psychedelic guitar lines and scatterings of broken brass is the order and Papa Chango delivers like no other. Unique in this thriving Melbourne scene they take it to the gritty edge, melding banging technique with playful exuberance. This Melbourne based 9-piece brings audiences to a sweat on packed dance-floors, evoking a hidden spirit within.
Driven by staunch, funky bass lines, the Bluetongue sound is a deep, eclectic blend of glitchy, percussive stabs, dark, foreboding soundscapes and textured, melodic counterparts, with other habitual elements from a wide range of electronica and different musical styles, meticulously infused within the mix.
