The Primatives


Drums, Other Percussion.


Original "Folk Music that Rocks". Organic, straight from the heart. A thread of generic spirituality running through, but not proselytizing.
Really have a hard time with genres; they inspire copycats: We were--and are--inspired by Song Writers, Rock, Folk Rock, The Blues, Bluegrass, Individuality, Peace and Love, Spirituality, Search for Truth...

Seeking a talented drummer/percussionist to complete our predominantly acoustic sound. Our percussion has holes in it, so to speak, as Lilasuka plays some percussion but we lose that when she goes to flute, which is pretty often. Ability to play bass would be an asset as well, as Thierry can play only one instrument at a time. You can contact me at s://./jesse.s.hanson
