‘The Dance of Venus’ – coming soon. Samadhi is Led by drummer and composer Sam Gardner.
‘The Dance of Venus’ is a celebration of life, consciousness and the universe and the group explore the role of meditation and still mind in music.
Samadhi – achieved through meditation – is a state of consciousness in which the mind is clear and still. The musicians aim is to play music from this space, unhindered by the thinking mind and the ego and the music is the vehicle by which the group explore the role of meditation in music.
Samadhi also explores ‘number in time’, the essential nature of music by combining the highly structured numerical systems of rhythm found in Indian classical music and the pinpoint precision grooves and rich harmonic progressions of hip-hop.
This is an ensemble with a unified sound drawing on both musical and spiritual influences which hold real relevance to the members of the group.
Influenced by the music of Kendrick Scott Oracle, Terence Blanchard, J Dilla, Ohbliv, Dil Withers and Pop Tart Pete”
