Named by NPR as one of the top 10 bands in the U.S. – D'DAT combines hip hop, jazz, funk and soul to their original southwestern feel and genre.
D'DAT Trio is a multi-cultural band fusing Indigenous traditions with Native Southwest rhythms, Jazz and Groove. Diné(Navajo) trumpet artist Delbert Anderson connects traditional Diné spinning melodies with improvisational Jazz language. LatinX funk percussion of drumset artist Nicholas Lucero integrates his Peruvian and Spanish culture into a modern funky style, while groove bassist Mike McCluhan connects and flows. Together, they create a cross cultural collaboration that forms the experience of Hózhó(beauty and balance). By integrating different identities and cultural backgrounds and traditions, they come together in musical harmony.
**There will be a pre-show talk with the artists before the performance from 6:30PM to 7:00PM.
