Seeking to bridge the gap between live music and electronic dance beats, Pnuma literally exploded onto the music scene last summer with powerful performances at venues such as Wakarusa, Camp Bisco and countless others. Riding on the cusp of innovation while remaining in tune with their past influences, Pnuma offers beat-driven, precise compositions that still allow ample space for free thought and movement. Their music is truly a marriage of many different influences, and one should not be quick to pigeon-hole this group as just another jamband. Strong improvisational skills are also apparent in this Memphis-based trio, which is comprised of Alex Botwin on bass, Ben Hazlegrove on keyboards, and Lane Shaw on drums and percussion. Simply put, this is one performance at Wakarusa that you do not want to miss.
