HuDost has just returned from an absolutely amazing experience as a resident band at FloydFest FloydFest where they did full concerts each evening along with sets of Sufi Kirtan Super Jams every day. They also did the programming for their stage which will included yoga and tai chi classes, concerts by other very talented musicians (including Incendio, Jim Beckwith, Oakes and Smith, George Tortorelli, and others), and wonderful workshops. Also, HuDost will had the amazing dancers of Appalacian Flow Arts and Biz’Cirque dancing with them. This included a full trapeze and aerial rig.
Other musicians performing at FloydFest included Ben Harper, Lauryn Hill, Ray Lamontagne, Thievery Corporation, Ziggy Marley, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Buddy Guy, and many more. HuDost was really delighted to be a part of such am amazing array of musicians and had an absolutely wonderful experience performing there. The response from the festival and the crowd was very warm and there was very joyous participation.
Being able to bring on board a wide array of really excellent performers to collaborate with us was remarkable. We feel that this sets the framework for what we would like to do at other festivals in the future. We also hope to play FloydFest again!
Here are a couple of photos from our stage!
