Snarky Puppy At SXSW 2016

Three members of the GRAMMY-winning collective Snarky Puppy — bandleader Michael League, keyboardist Bill Laurance, and drummer Robert “Sput” Searight — took a moment from their busy SXSW schedule to talk to GRAMMY Pro about their genre-defying music. The trio spoke about their GRAMMY-winning collaboration with the Metropole Orkest, the second installment in the Family Dinner series, and their latest studio album, Culcha Vulcha.

“The aspiration of the band and everybody involved is to really break down these barriers between the genres and say that a classical ballad can sit happily next to a really hard, deep, loud, dirty groove,” Laurance explained.
