From America to Mexico to Peru travels the nomadic band Death Is A Business. It’s hard to call our group a singular band since the lineup frequently changes. It can’t be helped however, as we experiment with genres from around the world.
Death Is A Business was created in 2013 in a New York City college dorm room. Since then, it has traveled throughout the US and Latin America. The group’s sound incorporates musicians and instruments from around the world like the Afro-Peruvian cajon and the Andean flute.
We focus on humans' relationship to the natural world, for subsistence and spiritual practice. We collaborate to tell stories inspired by and for the people. The artistic process involves relationship-building, deep listening (to those alive and dead), dream-making, and engaging in ritual and meditation. Ultimately we want to create beautiful powerful music and bridge cultural gaps.
