ABOUT HOUSE OF WATERS
“In today’s world, there are no musical boundaries,” says Max ZT of ‘House of Waters,’ a trio that makes those words come alive as they incorporate elements of West-African, jazz, psychedelic, indie rock, classical and world music into their astonishingly unique sound.
The “Jimi Hendrix of the Hammered Dulcimer” (NPR), Max ZT is an innovator of an instrument rarely heard in contemporary music. With roots in Irish folk music, Max has studied in Senegal, where he trained with the Cissoko Griot family, and India, where he studied under the santoor master Pandit Shivkumar Sharma. His unorthodox playing style has been a pioneering force in revolutionizing dulcimer techniques.
Moto Fukushima is a recognized master of the six-string bass. With a background in jazz improvisation, Western classical music, and the music of South America, Moto’s playing is a combination of finesse, subtlety, and power that leaves audiences “slack-jawed in awe.” (Jazz Wise)
Drummer Richie Barshay is one of the most sought-after drummers in the NYC scene. Performing regularly with The Klezmatics, Herbie Hancock, Lee Konitz, Esperanza Spalding, and many others, Richie brings a unique blend of jazz, Afro-Latin, and klezmer drumming styles to the group.
This is House of Waters’ first visit to the Tusten Theatre and the launch of their 2022 tour for their newly released album “Where I Wander.”
