Not many folks can make a cello sound as resonant and hypnotic as Dan Kassel can. The Philly-bred musician just released his new album Tribes Forgotten, the follow-up to last year’s BLOOM. Kassel’s latest foray into our hearts features cello covers of Foster the People’s 2011 breakout hit “Pumped Up Kicks” and Daft Punk & Pharrell’s Grammy award-winning disco-pop gem “Get Lucky.”

His signature style of playing remains well intact and is meant to take the listener “to great heights and over vast expanse”. In using a classic instrument to deliver modern grooves, Kassel does just that and more. Get tickets to his record release show on April 10th at World Cafe Live here.
