Zenbarn welcomes Billy Wylder
____________________________
“A spiritual cousin to Paul Simon’s Graceland” –Seven Days

From the front-lines at Standing Rock to the archaic streets of Jerusalem, the Sahel Desert to Carnegie Hall, music has been the source of strength for Billy Wylder. The band features Avi J. Salloway (Bombino/Hey Mama/Avi & Celia) joined by an inspired cast of singular artists who have performed in over twenty five countries, including concerts at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival, Newport Folk Festival, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Montreal Jazz Fest, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center. From 2013-16, Salloway toured the globe with Bombino, the Tuareg guitar hero from Niger, Africa. While on the journey and since returning, Salloway wrote a collection of new material that will be released on the band’s forthcoming album in 2018.

The music weaves together American folk and rock with sensibilities from the Sahara Desert: think Andrew Bird meets Ali Farka Toure, Pete Seeger and Talking Heads. Mother Earth is at its center, surrounded by stories of love, conflict, change and dreams. 

The band has toured extensively, performing and collaborating with renowned artists including the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Jack Johnson, Bombino, The Low Anthem, and Pete Seeger.
