The Pariahs are an improvisation heavy, psych-jazz leaning, live hip hop quintet from Portland, OR. Shandon Fox (drums), Brandon Lindsey (guitar), Andre Burgos (keys), and Chris Frank (bass) craft lush soundscapes atop a deeply rooted backbeat, while emcee Wes Guy’s lyrical delivery evokes an old-school vibe. Their debut EP “Introducing...The Pariahs” was released in March of 2018.
Hafa is a new group lead by Guam native and Portland based drummer Cory Limuaco. This group is comprised of a unique set up, delivering unique and tasteful sounds that embody hip hop, Rnb/ soul and jazz (I.e. Robert Glasper, Butcher Brown,) as well as a few unreleased originals. Hafa in Guam’s language of Chamorro means “hello” or often used as a term for “what’s up.” Let us introduce ourselves to you!
