Rupa & The April Fishes
Rupa & The April Fishes
Rupa and the April Fishes create a sound that pulsates with the pluralism of Bay Area culture, celebrating life and the art of resistance through a wide musical palette that pulls from over a decade of playing street parties, festivals and symphonic concerts through 29 countries with songs in 5 languages. Under the direction of composer, frontwoman, activist and physician Rupa, the band creates a live experience which is a manifestation of a world beyond nations, where the heart of humanity beats louder than anything that divides us. With several albums that have topped world music charts in the US, Canada and Europe, the band returns home to San Fransisco to release their much anticipated sixth album Growing Upward featuring special guests Todd Sickafoose on bass, Andrew Borger on drums, Marco Benevento on organ and Xaxli’p First Nation composer Deanna Gestrin. Chronicling sounds and stories of voices at the margins, moving between deeply personal and political, these songs sing to the tender power of love and the force of hope that lies within transformation. The album features artwork by a longtime collaborator, the San Francisco-based artivist and muralist, Mona Caron.
