Arthur Lee Land - One Man Band

Tonight we have some offerings from Arthur Lee Land. There wasn’t much material to work with, but most of his pieces are fairly long so it still works out to over an hour’s worth of music.

This bio from his website best explains what his music is all about.
Arthur Lee Land combines diverse influences to create a fresh new musical vibe: Afrograss Flavored Folk Rock. During a tour of Nigeria and Ghana, West Africa in 2001, Arthur spawned the concept of Afrograss: a synthesis of West African percussion and bluegrass in a folk rock context with a touch of funk, jazz, reggae, latin and world beat. Touring as a multi-instrumental solo act Arthur calls “A One-Man Afrograss Folk Rock Ensemble,” he utilizes “loop” (live recording) technology to create a full band sound by layering African percussion, bass, acoustic & electric guitars, guitar synth, vocals and talk box.
In tonight’s opener Arthur demonstrates how it is done.
