Philadelphia-based jam band Lotus fluidly blends jazz, funk, and global music to create danceable soundscapes. Their music is performed live it although it has the electronic feel of a house DJ. Their trancey, trip-hop style offers a highly melodic alternative to club music. Interlocking rhythms and breakbeats create an atmosphere of irresistible grooves and organic disco. Since its inception in 1999, LotusÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ reputation has grown exponentially due to regular touring and word of mouth from devoted fans that trade Lotus's music across the country (and globe). This media attention has opened many new markets for the band as old ones continue to grow.
