YYC's own 10-piece deepgroove-afrodisco-cinematicsoul ensemble, fresh off the release of their 2nd album HOT PLATE and their performance at Calgary Folk Music Festival 2019.
FREAK MOTIF got together in the summer of 2009 when a group of strangers replied to an ad on craigslist, got together for a jam session, and next thing they knew they were on a parade through downtown Calgary.
The spirit of improvisation and the interlocking rhythms of afrobeat, funk, reggae and soul music inspire the Freaks to make music that resonates in the ribcage.
