Fans return to experience the band again and again because they know they will always hear something new and progressive from these four first-class musicians.
Featuring guitar and sitar virtuoso Fareed Haque, world-renowned bass master and educator Kai Eckhardt, gospel-inspired funky jazz keyboardist Eric Levy, and genetically-funky Sean Rickman, Garaj Mahal combines a century of musical experience to create a sound that’s always new, freshly infused with a wide spectrum of musical expression, and always smoking hot.
Touring extensively since their formation in 2000, Garaj Mahal continues to earn critical acclaim and a growing fanbase thanks to their ability to deliver serious “shut-up-and-listen” grooves while simultaneously bringing the dance floor alive.
