What if Black Sabbath played Afrobeat? You end up with something that sounds a lot like L.A. based quintet Here Lies Man. Founded and conceptualized by Marcos Garcia of Antibalas, the band blends West African rhythms with riff-based heavy rock. Here Lies Man merges and expands musical traditions, utilizing the talents of drummer Geoff Mann (son of jazz musician Herbie Mann), percussionist Rich Panta, bassist JP Maramba and guitar/vocalist Chico Mann. Here Lies Man is set to release their debut album drops in April 2017, and you can catch their hazy, psychedelic, afro-inspired rock this fall at UP+DT.
