For the past two years, Philly five-piece Interminable has explored the meeting ground between folk music and jammy improv, working mainly in son jarocho — a regional style of music from Veracruz, Mexico — and incorporating elements of jazz, electronic music, and rock.
The band is comprised of Ximena Violante on jarana, violin, and vocals; John Cole on drums; Rodrigo Pichardo on bass; Brian O’Connell on piccolo bass; and Becca Graham from Hardwork Movement on trumpet. This summer, they recorded a new single, “Consecuencia,” with the folks at Weathervane Music that they plan to release ahead of their first-ever U.S. tour, which kicks off next month at The Lilypad in Boston and wraps up a week later at the AfroFuturist Affiar’s Time Travel Camp in Philly.
While we wait for it to roll around, you can catch Interminable plaing an acoustic duo show this Wednesday, August 30th, at Dahlak Paradise in West Philadelphia. More information on that show can be found at the band’s website; below, listen to some music on Soundcloud, watch a video profile from PhillyCAM and check out a poster with Interminable’s tour dates.
