ART TERRY & THE BLACK BOHEMIANS
Art Terry and the Black Bohemians play their own unique and delirious brand of arthouse funk. Art’s songs explore Black politics, sexuality and religion, through a lyrical fusion [gumbo] of African American folklore and hauntological funk. A singer and pianist, Art underpins deeply personal lyrics with dense melodic textures to create conceptual Black music. A prolific songwriter, he created a song a day during 52 days of lockdown, a project which evolved into the Self Isolation Songbook.
Brought up in the gospel tradition, Art evokes the sacred figure of the robed and commanding preacher alongside the profane swagger and bravado of the street-hustling savant in his live performances. Whether playing solo or with the Black Bohemians, his ten-piece ensemble of talented musicians, Art’s live performances are theatrical and compelling.
‘True art. If you ever have the chance to see Art Terry live, definitely go for it – you won’t regret it.’ Discovery Music
