FYM PRESS PLAY: DAS DHOOM • NEW ALBUM - POETRY OF DHOOM, SEATTLE WA USA
Seattle world music mind benders -Das Dhoom, have a new album out titled Poetry of Dhoom -It's a 10-track journey into the mind of James Whetzel, who aside from being a classically trained sarod player (25-stringed Indian instrument similar to the sitar) is also quite the music producer as heard in this latest release. We suggest listening to Poetry of Dhoom w/ headphones on to get the full picture of Das Dhoom's bliss-filled fusion of sonic realities old and new. (Listen Below)
Poetry of Dhoom is: cinematic, enlightening, refreshing -heavy on complex adventure. The new record features James Whetzel's thoughtful vocals and sarod playing prowess. This ancient sound is paired well with vigorous digital landscapes and Sebastian Lange's spellbinding violin work. It's music for advocates of joy.
Below, FYM features live footage from our previous article about Whetzel -performing the tune Ending to Dhoom solo in front of Seattle Art Museum on PARK(ing) Day this past September.
