Shamanistic voodoo blues trance party! The energetic and increasingly renowned Dutch trio was launched onto major stages by American blues phenomenon Seasick Steve, who took My Baby on his European tour in 2015. Since then, My Baby have wowed audiences at all major European indie, blues and trance festivals, from Glastonbury and Ozora to INmusic, where they filled in for cancelled stars Skunk Anansie – and blew listeners away. In November, the tranceblues shamans are finally coming to Šiška – listen to your ancestors’ summons and come dance!
With its third album Prehistoric Rhythm, released in March via Glitterhouse Records, Amsterdam trio My Baby delved deep into ancient times, infusing its bluesy psychedelia with the hypnotic shamanistic rituals that have brought people together throughout the millennia. Whether it’s tribal dances around fire or the pulse of electronic carnivals – the need for such joint rituals is inscribed in human DNA, believes the band. In shaping their music, they thus draw on swampy Louisiana guitars, traditional African trances, R&B sensuality and gospel-inspired dub alike.
On the new release, the band’s kaleidoscopic voodoo music reaffirms My Baby as one of the best Dutch bands, a title already earned with their award-winning Shamanaid and their equally excellent debut Loves Voodoo!. Live, the group floods the senses not just with their music, but with a captivating light show and visuals as well. No wonder they played not just one, but seven gigs at Glastonbury 2015, and were featured at all other major European festivals. And in autumn, they’re coming to Šiška!
The expressive and explosive power-groove trio Message of Love, a new project by half of popular blues rock band Wacky Blues Professors and Bor Zakonjšek, will perform ahead of My Baby.
