With soulful grooves and impeccable musicianship, The Natural Culture unites the vibrant spirit of world music, encompassing jazz, funk, soul, blues and reggae, everywhere they go. Dynamic, uplifting and fun, their music is a harmonious combination of artfully written songs and powerful musical phrasing. Crowds can't help but let loose to their infectious energetic tunes, enticing the coolest of Grandpas, multifaceted millennials and the most tempestuous toddlers, to get up and cut their own groove on the dancefloor. Following on from the success of their debut album in 2011, the seed was planted for their evolution into a semi-nomadic tribe, uniquely living and breathing music together through every waking hour. Inspired by a united professional grounding that runs through their music like blood runs through veins, they can now be found traversing the east coast of Australia, Europe and Asia taking stages of all sizes by storm. Having opened for classic pop icons such as Mental As Anything, performed at the Augustibluus BluesFest in Estonia, participated in short festival shows and secured long-term seasonal gigs, they are also right at home marching into burger joints spontaneously ‘bombing” unsuspecting audiences or blending seamlessly into the rich traditions of the funky, old school New Orleans set. Their distinctive sound combines the best of the old schools with the new, and embodies a tapestry of cultural diversity, world harmony, community engagement and respect for environmental sustainability. Supported by a loyal and adoring following in person and across social platforms, they offer a versatile and maturing sound that is rapidly attracting the attention of serious music fans globally.
“They made people dance and feel the good vibes flowing during the whole concert.”
