Cathartic Conundrum

Boston based trio

 

"I've never enjoyed glockenspiel so much as I do hearing it that video." -Beth Redmond, Cambridge Community Television

Cathartic Conundrum is a trio influenced by Latin rhythms, classical music, jazz harmony, poetic whimsy and surreality. Comprised of saxophone (Jesse Colford), percussion (Nicholas Samuel), piano, ukulele, and voice (Anaís Azul), Cathartic Conundrum uses this diverse array of timbres, vivid, visceral imagery and bilingual lyrics (Spanish and English) to tell stories about mental health, queerness, existentialism, politics, and emotionality.
