“Datura Road is a world music ensemble that is combining the sounds of East and West with the energy of the Hudson Valley and greater New York area. Datura Road was created when guitarist, oudist, vocalist, and pennywhistle player, Matt Nobile invited guitarist/mandolinist, and former teacher Raphael Garritano, to work through some songs. Percussionist David Budd was recruited shortly thereafter, and bassist Peter Nobile was pulled in by his son Matt who then became the fourth member. Influenced by western classical and medieval music, and flavored with West African and Middle Eastern music, with a splash of jazz, Datura Road has a world music sound that is uniquely engaging and passionately palatable, achieving the best energy that world music has to offer. Their self-titled debut album contains innovative, fervent and talented performances. Each tune is unexpectedly lyrical and vibrates with deep sentiments of Eastern and Western sounds and colors. Datura Road is a musical celebration of the sounds of the East and the West as they infuse organic polyrhythms, gifted instrumental playing and drums and percussion, built around the exploration of deeply corporeal grooves. The band has a good collaborative feeling and have many guest artists that bring in new colors and sounds throughout the album. A restorative and uplifting listen all in one, meant to be enjoyed and shared. Its beauty is a kaleidoscope of delight.”
Gary Siegel is a poet, vital member of the Hudson Valley poetry scene, and the
founder of Kingston’s popular Poetry Brothel. The inspiration for much of the
work that appears in his new book: In the Cradle of Silence has come from
spending time being touched by nature. His day job as a therapist involves
plumbing the depths of what it is to be human, and while we’re at it, animal. In
the end it is the mysteries that gain his attention, and become his poems.
