Kamasi Washington‘s set was a major highlight at Hulaween 2017. On Saturday afternoon, Kamasi and his musical family, including his father, was stellar, super funky and captivating. His compositions are beautifully arranged blending elements of classical, jazz and even spiritual music into a very special mix. Each tune steadily builds harmonically to a crescendo that makes it feel very uplifting.
The entire set was exceptionally but was highlighted by the final two numbers, Truth from the Harmony of Difference EP of the same name and Kamasi’s now classic The Rhythm Changes from The Epic 3-CD inaugural voyage which features the wonderful Patrice Quinn on vocals.
Hulaween is known as a jam, funk and EDM festival but Kamasi and his jazz family fit right in and was strongly received by the audience regardless. Catch the full set here exclusively –
