About Peter Joseph Burtt & The King Tide
Peter Joseph Burtt, a lifelong drummer, draws from many sources to inform his music and chronicles the years he spent living and studying with master musicians of Africa. Much of his music is played on traditional instruments: the lute like Kora and the Mbira or thumb piano. Songs are also transposed for the guitar. Burtt was a graduate student in San Francisco, studying creative writing , spoken word, and African drum and folklore when he began looking to cultures that maintain oral histories for connections between rhythm, music, and the spoken word. Upon learning of the melodious music of the Mbira and the corresponding poetry of the Shona people, he left at once for Zimbabwe, then Ghana, and the Gambia, staying long in each place, living and moving within the society of the traditional musician while expanding his own musical vision. The band KingTide help bridge these influences back home.
