Matt Venuti and The Rhythm of Life featuring Daniel Berkman and John Steiner
Singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Matt Venuti will be joined by his Venusian bandmates in an amazing ensemble of sound-sculpting and deep grooving multi-instrumentalists. Matt’s latest CD, The Rhythm Of Life, charted high on the ZMR top 100 and he’ll be sharing some of these songs along with some “Venusian-ized” music that is legendary in the San Francisco Ambient and World Music scene. Matt will be playing the acoustic instruments from the PANArt company in Switzerland that include the Hang, Gubal, and Gudu, as well as the US made Electronic Valve Instrument (EVI).
The Rhythm of Life ensemble includes Daniel Berkman; a prolific multi-instrumentalist/composer who plays masterfully the Kora (African harp), electronic and acoustic percussion and a litany of stringed instruments. Keyboardist and composer John Steiner brings bountiful heart and depth with his gorgeous chordal voicings, bass-lines, and inspiring sounds. Expect an evening of inspiring, heart-opening songs, poetic lyricism, ambient/chill grooves and out-of-this-world-music!
