The Red Sea Pedestrians are a one-of-a-kind, full-blown, instrument-swapping fusion between tradition and the here- and-now. We’re talkin’ high-energy world-beat grooves, hypnotic laments from the earth, songs of celebration and wonder: a warped and beautiful blend of Klezmer, Greek, Gypsy, Celtic, Jazz and American Roots, all filtered through the band’s original vision.
RSP are a melting pot of six distinct multi-instrumentalists and singer/songwriters, almost a self-contained variety show. Their sound is first defined by the sweet interplay between clarinet and violin and is colored by three fine singers and multi-instrumentalists, as well as masterful percussion. The band members are also students of the great records of the sixties (notably late Beatles) and hence they have created a realm that is both comforting and challenging to the listener. Multi-layered lyrics, rich harmonies, and masterful playing complete the story.
