Dirtwire Announce The Electric River Tour + New Single “Talking Bird feat. Mbilou

Dirtwire, the genre bending, African ngoni and jawharp plucking, harmonica and trumpet blowing, electric guitar slinging, violin and banjo bowing, blues singing, Siberian ghostcatcher playing trio of cowboys from California announce new single, “Talking Bird” feat. Mbilou and Aya is out now and available everywhere you stream music. And catch the new track here: https://fanlink.to/talkingbird

“The mungongo is a mouthbow from Gabon and is an instrument used in Iboga ceremonies. We contacted Mbilou a singer and mungongo (mouth bow) player from Gabon, after seeing one of his videos on YouTube and got the collaboration going. The result, which also features female vocals from Aya, is an upbeat of deep African Congo jungle vibrations in a dancefloor groove,” comments Dirtwire on the new single “Talking Bird.”

The new single drops just in time for the current Dirtwire tour – Electric River! The 25+ date tour takes the trio through-out the mid-west, west and up through Canada. Check out the tour dates here and below.

The spirit of their musical journey is best expressed in their live show, where every set is a magician’s surprise, an invitation to experience instruments that are often heard only as samples in electronic music and to celebrate the art of the instrument, not just the sound. Future revival, swamptronica, spaghetti-step, electro-twang — whatever you want to call Dirtwire’s music, what matters is that you can dance to it, as sure as a lizard dances in the desert.
