Check out some of the amazing bands playing at this year's Tribal Earth

The Eskies

The Grimaldi Band

Stacks Image 163
Playing for the second time at Tribal Earth because we love them, The Grimaldi Band are an acoustic trio from Worcestershire and Warwickshire, writing and performing songs using guitars, flute and tight vocal harmonies.

Ushti Baba

Stacks Image 1258
Ushti Baba are an eight piece fusion band who deliver traditional and original travelling songs with exuberance and panache.  The band’s infectious spirit and passion for the stories behind the songs has gained them fans nationwide. They combine raucous accordion, sonorous strings and exotic percussive rhythms with stomping Balkan and contemporary beats to create an exciting and energetic live show which never fails to get audiences dancing. Their heart-wrenching Celtic melodies and dark Circesque sounds are mashed up with Jungle / DnB / Dubstep beats delivered by beatbox extraordinaire, Jack Salt.

Professor Elemental

The Undercover Hippy

Stacks Image 601
Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. His music brings together acoustic guitar, soulful vocals, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled mc. After 7 years spent DJ’ing and MC’ing on the Drum & Bass circuit, Billy swapped the decks for a guitar and started out as a solo act in 2007.
Stacks Image 609
Although he still occasionally does solo gigs, he now usually plays with a full band, mixing guitars, keys, drums, bass, percussion and backing vocals to create a high energy, interactive and highly entertaining live show. Combining intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking man to shake his arse to. Think Jason Mraz meets The Cat Empire…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe.

The Devines

Stacks Image 359
The Divines are firm favourites at Tribal Earth performing as a family, John Caz and Joe, with groups of friends in more relaxed gatherings, hosting Irish music workshops or if your lucky you'll hear them just sitting in the field playing wonderful impromptu music.

Check out the video - we love them and we're sure you will too.

Wild Willy Barrett


Wild Willy Barrett's French Connection

" this 'folk band' is very different from anything else you will experience in the UK at the moment ...  what a wonderful evening of unique and fresh musical entertainment!”   Simon Icke

The instruments include, Mbira, Vocals, Drums, Guitar, Bass, Sax, Keys. (Mbira is the traditional thumb piano instrument of Zimbabwe).

They bring to their performances a ranges of styles, from very traditional Mbira music, (Mbira being a traditional thumb piano instrument) with deep and uplifting songs in the Shona language. The group also make Reggae with the spirit and integrity of early roots music, coupled with the punch and energy of modern Ragga.
