Barika is a six piece funky, dubbed out, psychedelic West African flavored band from Burlington, Vermont. The group is led by Craig Myers who, in addition to leading Barika on the N’Goni, is also a current member of Mike Gordon’s Band, and was one of the original founding members of Rubblebucket.
“Led by their grooves, Barika is wholly rhythmic, captivating audiences with the beautiful, hypnotic way in which they interweave melody and groove to create something that is not only danceable, but incredibly interesting to listen to. Barika creates a soundscape of funk soaked in psychedelic, West African resonance.” (Performer Magazine)
“In their most realized band effort to date, one that truly captures the essence of West African, soul and psychedelia into a bold brew that retains focus, intrigue and undeniably stellar musicianship; Barika has created an underground classic.” (Glide Magazine )
