Rupa & The April Fishes

Rupa and the April Fishes create a sound that pulsates with the pluralism of Bay Area culture, celebrating life and the art of resistance through a wide musical palette that pulls from over a decade of playing street parties, festivals and symphonic concerts across three continents, over three oceans and through twenty-nine countries. For this special show at Yoshi's they will be sharing music from their forthcoming album, Growing Upward, a synthesis of sounds from a the past five years on the frontline of social struggles. Drummer Aaron Kierbel, cellist Misha Khalikulov, trumpeter Mario Alberto Silva, keyboardist and duduk player JHNO, bassist Daniel Fabricant and violinist Matt Szemela together with composer Rupa create a live experience which is a manifestation of a world beyond nations, where the heart of humanity beats louder than anything that divides us. This is Liberation Music.
