The music of HuDost, the Neo Folk World Rock Ensemble from Montreal and KY, weaves a seamless tapestry of sound that renders tears and laughter in listeners, cultivating that nameless longing that abides somewhere in all our hearts. HuDost’s core musicians are Moksha Sommer and Jemal Wade Hines. Having toured the US, Canada, and Europe constantly since April 2006, HuDost has grown and expanded, travelled rocky and glorious terrain and marveled at all they can learn and explore. Moksha and Jemal Wade, in this time have grown as artists, as seekers, as a couple and as a family. In 2013 their amazing son was brought into the world.

New Live Videos! 

Yes! That is right! We are excited about these new videos from our recent Music City Roots performance and hope you enjoy them!



Amazing time at Blissfest and upcoming Ark show! 

We have just returned home from an absolutely amazing tour. This tour began with doing concerts as HuDost and then transforming into Marty Willson-Piper's band; Acres of Space. These dates brought us to some wonderful places in May and June. We will be touring more with Marty in the coming year and plan to record new versions of some of his hit songs and some of his lesser known masterpieces with him. 

In June we did dates just as HuDost in a number of magical places including Montreal, and Quebec City, and parts of New York. Just this last weekend we had the amazing honor of returning to BlissFest in northern MI. This festival is an absolutely heart warming, large, family-style affair full of festive people, excellent staff, and ridiculously great music. We played 2 shows, one of which was on the main stage. I think the photos give good perspective on the happiness that ensued. 

Especially with all of the pain and confusion that currently exists in our world. For us and for many, music seems to be a healing and unifying force. We are grateful to be a part of that. We will be playing the famous Ark in Ann Arbor this Sunday and look forward to sharing the continues Bliss in this setting.

KarmaFest

Fellowship Farm, 2488 Sanatoga Rd, Pottstown, PA 19464

http://www.karmafest.com

KarmaFest at Fellowship Farm is taking place on Labor Day Weekend September 2nd – 5th at Fellowship Farm in Pottstown, PA. This is the second year for this beautiful event. This location was used for a similar event that no longer takes place there so sought out KarmaFest to take the place of the other festival, and to combine communities. The first year was a great success and this year will be even better! This will be a Full Holiday Weekend experience. Expect lots of music, 50-75 SELECT vendors, FREE lectures and workshops, good food (vegan/vegetarian) and two full days of yoga! This KarmaFest will be focused on the relaxed camping atmosphere and staying over is encouraged (tent camping as well as very nice dorm spaces are available). We also have a beautiful swimming pool so let’s make this your end-of-the-summer FUN EXTENDED WEEKEND GET AWAY! Think lots of time around the drum circle and bonfire at night, and waking to a great KarmaFest, with all the trimmings, during the day! Cost for the FULL WEEKEND PASS, with 3 Night Stay, starts at only $88 for TENT CAMPING and $122 for DORM STAY. If you can’t spend the night, the cost for a DAY PASS is only $20. The full schedule will be available in August 2016.
