Kulululu has traveled long and far to finally arrive on earth. While here, Kulululu is in search of the answers to the questions; why? and why not? You may not understand what they are saying. You may not understand why they look the way they do. They may not understand these things either. What's important is that time is continuous, and without it we cannot find our way back to where we started.
Humulululuman is a collaborate super group set by Kulululu and Human Ottoman.
Human Ottoman is Susan Lucía (drums), Matthew Cartmill (cello), and Grayson Fiske (vibraphone). After meeting in Eugene, Oregon as music school misfits, they joined forces, quickly creating a repertoire of raucous, rhythmically dynamic music which combined their enthusiasm for music of all cultures with classical backgrounds and modern genre-mashing-jazz sensibilities, characterized most of all by their unique instrumentation. Their first album, aptly named "Power Baby", was independently released in May of 2014. Since then, they have been actively ear-pillaging throughout the west coast. From brain-crashing cello solos and atomic vibraphone drops to drum solos that scholars are still struggling to understand, Human Ottoman is bringing polyrhythmic world-metal to the masses.
