Milwaukee-based Painted Caves have earned a reputation for their highly original, Arab American music and mesmerizing live performances. Built on a foundation of Western experimentation and Middle Eastern tradition, the group uses traditional folk and jazz instruments (oud, daf, trumpet, flute) as a base and focal point against a backdrop of hypnotic rhythm (guitar, bass, percussion) and dreamy, uplifting songwriting.
Seamlessly melding shoegaze distortion with delicate microtones and vocal harmonies, their music transports the listener from the sands of the North African desert to the sunny beaches of Baja California and the great ocean beyond on a musical journey that is inspiring, reflective and celebratory. http://www.amarrass.com/artists/artists/painted-caves
