Nomo: Rancho Tranquilico.
June 24 and 25. A hugely popular local band in the years immediately after its founding in 2003 by bandleader Elliot Bergman when he was still a U-M student, Nomo has been called “a sonic maelstrom” (NPR), “eight-headed future-jazz geniuses” (Alternative Press), and “a true innovator with a style totally its own” (Pitchfork). Its tightly knit ensemble of touring musicians has an eclectic sound that incorporates Afrobeat, jazz, world music, and electronica, to produce music that is funky, danceable, emotional, and full of life. The band has appeared on stages worldwide, including at the Montreal Jazz Festival, Bonnaroo, and the World Music Expo in Spain. BYOB and a chair.
