Tigue is a group of three percussionists with a fluid musical identity. The Brooklyn-based trio (Matt Evans, Amy Garapic and Carson Moody) makes their own kinetic and hypnotic blend of instrumental minimalism while opening up the possibilities of their instrumentation through commissioning and collaboration. Tigue’s debut album Peaks was released in 2015 with New Amsterdam Records with highlighted performances at the Ecstatic Music Festival, Bric Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, and the Zemlika Festival in Durbe, Latvia. Recent commissions and premieres have included works by Molly Herron, Randy Gibson, Jason Treuting, Adrian Knight and Robert Honstein alongside collaborative ventures with Kid Millions and visual artist / sculptor Michael Mercil. These works have been presented in concert halls, galleries, black box theaters and universities throughout the country including EMPAC, Roulette, The deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Noguchi Museum, Yale School of Music, and Princeton University. Praised for their focused and “high octane” performances (New York Times), the Ohio-born band members have worked together since they were practically children.

Along with performing, the members of Tigue are dedicated to outreach and community projects. In collaboration with Make Music New York, the trio has led three 10-week music education programs with adult and adolescent inmates at New York City’s Rikers Island Correctional Facility, featured in both the New York Times and Rolling Stone Magazine. Working with inmates in both men’s and women’s facilitates, the trio shared the communicative nature of music through West African musical traditions and hand drumming culminating with inmate performances for the Rikers population. Tigue has also presented workshops and masterclasses with collegiate universities, elementary classrooms and community groups across the globe.

DIáSPORA is a nomadic band; sonic witchcraft by Chiquita Magic (voice, synths) & Anaïs Maviel (voice, percussion); a futuristic carnival music that transcends status-quo, cross-pollinates complex realities, inspires lucid dreams.
Ancient and future songs in experimentation and trance, altogether crushing the bounds of static genres and identities. The cross-cultural & intersectional core of the band creates a music shaped by the complex diasporic relations of the American continent (where Indigenous, African, European & Asian cultures formulate unique and ever-changing musical expressions). Influences from folklores, avant-garde and dance culture (hip hop, electronic music, afro-descendant drumming, vocal catharsis) impact compositions that color widely improvised performances with unheard esthetics.

Live recorded in Mexico City, DIáSPORA, eponymus album, is the sound of bodies in motion across space and time. Produced in South, Central and North America, in collaboration with Principa (MX) & Hérnia de Discos (BR), this is a call to gather tribes over the American continent and beyond. To reconcile ancestral and futuristic stories in the liveliness of contemporary languages.
