Digable Planets Presents: Butterfly and Doodlebug
Featuring the Cosmic Funk Orchestra (CFO) Band
Butterfly and Doodlebug, of the Grammy awarding-winning group the Digable Planets, are hitting the road again.
| Butterfly and Doodlebug|
In an age of auto-tone hip hop, the men of Digable Planets are working to return the genre to its roots and bring back meaningful, substance-driven lyrics over timeless beats. Following a successful Fall 2008 tour, Butterfly and Doodlebug will continue bringing their jazz, blues and society influenced classics back to the stage for faithful fans and new hip hop enthusiasts alike.
The Fall 2009 tour marks the first time the duo have performed Digable Planets songs with a live three-piece band since 2005. In addition to Digable classics, the tour will also showcase material for both artists' recent solo releases: Butterfly's Shabazz Palaces and Doodlebug's and the CFO's Intifadah.
Sample songs for this tour can be heard here.
