After a break – RHYTHM UNDERGROUND is back for 2019!
Don’t miss this amazing unique experience world rhythmic dance party event!
Rhythm Hunters are back in their biggest show of the past years, with the return of Rhythm Underground at The Jenolan Caves. With a brand new album ready to be released – this is the biggest and best album launch party we could imagine.
Rhythm Hunters have held 7 concerts in the arch and the event has seen 4000+ people to witness Frenetic Shamanic Dance, Japanese Shakuhachi Flute Master Riley Lee, thunderous Japanese drums, traditional music from Indonesia, electronic beats, drum and didge with Wild Marmalade and of course the enigmatic percussion master Nicky Bomba. It‘s like an organic dance party in the largest underground caves systems in the world.
Rhythm Hunters are a dynamite force combining music from Indonesia, Japan, West Africa and Australia. Cutting edge physical drumming, subtle electronics, western horns, Asian flute, tuned bells, synth effects, deep grooves and ethereal sound scapes combine, making them one of Australia’s most exciting music groups.
The ‘Wow’ factor comes from the dramatic physical movement spectacle originally influenced by Taiko drumming.
Rhythm Hunters new world tribal music has a reverence and a love of tradition that transcends age and genre. Incorporating power, pizzaz, funk, innovation and old school discipline that is delicately channelled into their irresistible sound and sweet Indo-Pacific Grooves.
Those that had the pleasure of catching this fabulous group as they closed out the 2015 Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival can attest to their warm infectious rhythms with soul.
“The Rhythm Hunters were a highlight of the 2015 Winter Magic Festival. They grooved, danced and drummed the night away with their own unique brand of music magic. Always a crowd pleaser and always create an amazing atmosphere whenever they appear on stage” – Tina Marie Pizel Sheil, Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival
“Rhythm Hunters seems to be a force of nature rather than a grouping of musicians… a show that was so musically engaging and complex that it feels like you have slipped inside an ancient myth or other world. I was clearly unprepared for the power of this act” – Steve Gadd, Director Cygnet Folk Festival
“Rhythm Hunters shone and inspired, the intensity of the drums, combined with the poetics of dance and martial arts was irresistible”. – Lisa Maree Botticelli, Australian Stage Online
