A pair of musical enigmas will travel to Invermere to perform at Bud’s Bar and Lounge on December 12, and the meld of violin medleys with electronic, hip hop and gypsy disco beats crosses musical borders with surprising ease.
“I think that my energy is really fun and dance-y, but also soulful and passionate.” Fraser said. I like to have peaks and valley in my show — it won’t be heavy hitting all the way through but there will be points in the set that just drive the beat home, and there are also points in the set that strike a mood chord with people.
The Beats, Strings and Life Tour features violinists Kytami and Michael Fraser, but each bring something a little unusual to their acts with the introduction of different styles of music to complement their playing.
Kytami prefers the heavy bass elements of electronic music and hip-hop, while Fraser favours funky aged disco, but each musician masterfully weaves the varying styles together.
“My favourite thing is the improvisation, creating something that is special to each individual show,” Fraser said. “That’s my inspiration.”
The show begins at 10 p.m., December 12 at Bud’s. Cover is $8.
