Beats Antique – World Fusion, Electronic Dance Music

Beats Antique, one of the significant acts of our time, delivers delicious, soul reaching rhythms and a multitude of live instrumental grooves blended together with electronic elements.  Add to that a breathtaking spectacle of tribal fusion and performance art of mysticaldelic proportions and you have a show that appeals to Burners, world music lovers and EDM-ers alike.

Known worldwide, they got their start with Tribal Derivations a sort of Middle Eastern inspired trip-hop belly dance music. –A fusion of old school jazz, hip-hop, and psychedelia, all rolled up into a framework of Middle Eastern influence.

Chris Hooper, a concert photographer based in Austin, created compelling images of the trio as they performed live during the Euphoria Music and Camping Festival 2014 (EMCF14).
