Brooding, hypnotic, jazz-infused notes and sophisticated improvisations weave seamlessly with an ultra-funky rhythm section. Introducing Tropical Downbeat Orchestra, the Poets of Funk. This Hawke's Bay based creative collective have an energy driven, eclectic repertoire that is mainly rooted in the boogie-dub, funky soul and jazz vibe. The vocals of Margot Wuts are like a fresh wind blowing in off the Tropical flow. She's very much the centerpiece around which the band weave their funky beats and jazzy grooves.
