BIO

Strong Sun Moon is a multi-genre experimental ensemble from Seattle influenced by Latin rhythms, Blues and World music. The group transcends genre boundaries with ancient rhythms, piercing 21st century lyrics, and a blend of musical styles from three continents, weaving a kind of inclusive love that inspires a true sense of community. Instruments from South America, Cascadia, and Eastern Europe form a compelling musical landscape highlighting visionary lyrics and social justice.

Charango and Ronroco, (10 string South American lute-like instruments) blend with slide guitar, banjo and world percussion, (bombo, cajón, frame drum). The ensemble creates a wide range of textures, sometimes venturing into deep grooves, at others diving into vibrant latin rhythms paired with lush vocal harmonies.

“…the musicians communicate their harmonies with such grace that the music approaches therapeutic levels of tranquility. … Strong Sun Moon is a fantastic album, the kind that restores your faith in modern music… The compositions are mixed with a loving grace that, for me, is almost unheard of nowadays.” – Sean Dennison, The Even Ground)
