Snarky Puppy, the music troupe consisting of a multitude of Brooklyn anarchists, is living proof that many cooks do not have to spoil the porridge. Their music contains at least as many rich layers as a genuine Italian-American lasagna. This fusion/jazz rock collective consists of up to 40 members who perform together in alternating line-ups under the signet Snarky Puppy. In terms of line-up, there's one constant out and in. Guest musicians included.


Such honorable instrumentalists as Roy Hargrove and Marcus Miller, but also vocalists from gospel tube Kirk Franklin to R&B queen Erykah Badu to Justin Timberlake have already worked with Snarky Puppy. Even the most relaxed gangster rapper in music history, Snoop Dogg, calls them "my nephews". He only does this with colleagues he really appreciates. Founded in 2004 and still running today, the constantly changing combo is led by bassist and composer Michael League.


A highlight of their work was called "Family Dinner Vol.2". Already the title indicated relaxation. And truly, there was a peaceful overlap of funk, Afro and soul passages, jazz horns and gifted world music voices from Salif Keita to Susana Baca. Brazilian and Swedish instrumentalists and jazz guitarist Charlie Hunter create a wide variety of moods. Even althippie David Crosby sang along.


The Kombo 2016 released the latest Snarky Puppy album "Culcha Vulcha", which was awarded a Grammy by the way. This suggests that the world of music will soon be delighted with a new throw. Live Snarky Puppy radiate an almost magical animality. A labsal in times of sterile hit parade clothing!
