Near Northeast

Performed in Sofar Washington D.C., Norfolk and Portland, OR

Based in DC, Near Northeast makes melodic-ambient-indie-folky music weaving Latin American, Indian, and Appalachian influences together to make a distinctive musical tapestry. The band met while playing a South Asian music festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and released their debut album “Curios” in 2015. Their sound - built around guitar, violin, and double bass - mixes ballads with dynamic soundscapes, vocal harmonies, drum machines, and the occasional melodica and cajon breakdown. They are currently at work on their second album.
