HIFA 1-6 May

Publish The Quest

Music • Tickets: $8.00

If you missed Jacob Bain and Publish the Quest at a previous HIFA, they are a hard-hitting hybrid of jazz, Afrobeat and hip-hop, fusing bold horns, beats, melodic guitar, and bass going heavy on the funk… Before you know it, you’re on your feet ready to dance and to sign up to join PTQ’s quest.

Bain started out by embracing West African licks and the sounds of the mbira. This fascination became a quest of its own, one that eventually took Bain to Africa, where he met many of his idols and dove deeper into the music.

Off-stage, the band continues their search for connection. Performing, teaching, and sharing donated instruments with a variety of art and youth centers around the world, whenever they get the chance. They have just finished their next album titled A Thousand Kinds of Gold, a compilation of the last four years of African trips. Collaborators on the new album include Oliver Mtukudzi, Vieux Farka Toure, Nneka, and Edith WeUtonga.
