Saw these guys at Outsidelands a couple of years ago and highly recommend it!
"On the heels of the very boom bap oriented "Masters of Ceremony" EP, Zion I drops "Libations" the reflective 2nd installment of their 3 part series. "This project was heavily influenced by one of my best friends passing away suddenly", states Zumbi, "His death put me in a mood to really analyze my life and how short this existence really can be. It opened my eyes and heart to both the ugliness and beauty of what we experience while alive." Hence, "Libations" broods with reflection and deep emotion. "To me, libation is when you honor someone by pouring out your brew before you sip, its a sort of prayer. On this EP, I poured out some liquor for my homie, as well as my family, and myself" shares Zumbi. The EP features production from AmpLive, Headnodic, and newcomer Featherload. It also has veteran MC's Mr Lif, Sadat X, and Opio featured prominently amongst others. Now ease back, and sip some of this heady wine from the Zion I cup."

Banjoist, composer, bandleader. Just in case you aren't familiar with Béla Fleck, there are some who say he's the premiere banjo player in the world. Others claim that Béla has virtually reinvented the image and the sound of the banjo through a remarkable performing and recording career that has taken him all over the musical map and on a range of solo projects and collaborations. If you are familiar with Béla, you know that he just loves to play the banjo, and put it into unique settings.
