Tricrotic In Chicago
tri·crotic (trī krät′ik)
PHYSIOL. designating or of a pulse having three separate rhythmic waves to each beat
Etymology: < Gr trikrotos, (rowed) with triple stroke < tri-, tri- + krotein, to beat (< IE *kret-, to strike > OE hrindan, to pus
Tricrotic means, literally, a heartbeat that has three parts. As a band,
Nomy Lamm, Marcus Rogers and Erin Daly illustrate this concept by bringing together three distinct, authentic, powerful self-taught, community-based musical voices. Based in Chicago , Tricrotic blends elements of hip hop, punk rock, soul, classic rock, tent-revival hymnal, and vaudeville stage. The effect is something never heard before, something to feel in every part of you, something to respond to: solid beats, driving accordion riffs, soaring violin, growling vocals with spellbinding harmonies, audience sing-alongs, hand-clapping and ecstatic dance moves invented by audience members on the spot.
Tricrotic are harbingers of a new old school; their songs have been known to affect weather patterns.
