Indigenous People is a group Marc started along with Tarus Mateen and Yarborough Charles Laws in 1998. They recorded several records in the span of 6 years.
In 2010, Marc decided to explore these same concepts with Focus Trio, which were started by Indigenous People, and became Cosmic Indigenous.
They brought some of our favorite musical contributors into the fold, to appear on the upcoming residency and accomplish the sound rooted from Indigenous People.
Almost all of the songs that will be performed at the cell on Jan. 17 are rooted in the concept of North Indian classical raga music, but with the melodic voice of Awa Sangho from Mali singing traditional Malian desert melodies that appear in both cultures in the same tonal set.
