Rich with bold brass and hypnotic percussion, Polyrhythmics' latest album, Caldera, showcases the instrumental eight-piece's impossibly tight grooves and virtuosic musicianship as they tear through a singular blend of funk, soul, psychedelic rock, R&B, progressive jazz, and Afrobeat. Calling to mind everything from Antibalas and the Dap-Kings to The Meters and Fela Kuti, it's without a doubt their strongest work to date, merging the infectious power of their live show with a sleek and nuanced studio sophistication.

The palette for the hard-driving modern afro-psycho-beat sound is built around the relentless rhythm of Grant Schroff and Lalo Bello, the heart thumping bass lines of Jason Gray, the intricate phrasings of Ben Bloom’s guitar, the searing avalanche of keyboard colors from Nathan Spicer and the melodic hooks and soaring solos from the horn section comprised of Scott Morning, Art Brown and Elijah Clark.

Surf/Punk Garage Rock revivalists, Cawama formed in Vancouver BC in early 2012 by the Miron brothers, with Danny Pereira joining shortly after in the summer of 2013 to create and complement the sound as we know it today,

After auditioning many drummers, we invited the talented guitar player Derrick Doll as a guest musician on bass for a couple of gigs, and after a couple of practices, chemistry and groove starting flowing making this move a permanent one keeping Derrick Doll on Bass.

Cawama is:

- Danny Pereira, Guitar & Vocals
- Derrick Doll, Bass
- Robb Miron, Guitar
- Tino Miron , Drums & Vocals

When singer songwriter David Ward released his psych-rock soul album, Golden Future Time, The Guardian voted him "Most likely to: Be assured of a golden future." Ward worked with fellow Vancouverites Elliot Vaughan and Martin Reisle (of Jay Malinowski’s Deadcoast) on the cinematic orchestrations for his expansive follow up, Transitioning: A Rhapsody in Five Parts, released October 2015, "...a songwriting sensibility that is at times, devastating."
