“SARATOGA” is an instrumental electro/trance/psychedelic punk dance band formed by the 3 piece
combo of Didgeridoo, Drum and Synthesizer.
They are usually invited to outdoor events like FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL, TOYOTA ROCK FESTIVAL and
DANCE MUSIC FUKUSHIMA! while also playing at small clubs and venues in cities. When they played
at FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL in 2012 at NAEBA SHOKUDO, a stage near the food area, their catchy dance
music sparked a bunch of people from the food area to start gathering, making a big crowd, dancing
and forming a mosh pit. It was a big moment to show for them how much SARATOGA has refined their
sense of music and strong impact with good dance vibes and punk attitudes. Their didgeridoo player is
from KOORIYAMA in FUKUSHIMA, a city damaged by the massive earthquake of 2011 and ongoing
issues with the nearby nuclear power plant. They are not a politically minded band, but they are trying
to make the situation in FUKUSHIMA better and organize events sometime.

They have released few albums so far, but this kind of band is definitely made for live music, especially
festivals like outside with nature will be super trippy.

 

ディジュリドゥ、ドラム、シンセサイザーによる
ダンスミュージックバンド

音源を有する民族、或いは土地や国が存在し
様々なアーティストによって再発見、獲得、消化されながら
技術の進歩と共に新しい作品が生み出され
同時に細分化され続けています。

SARATOGAの音楽を
「人力トライバルトランスバンド」
と称し、細分化されたジャンルの枠に組み込む作業を
敢えて放棄して表現するならば
「全ての都市音楽、民族音楽へのオマージュ」
である。

 
FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL 、TOYOTA ROCK FESTIVAL、蔵王龍岩祭、豪雪JAM、青空CAMP、ONE MUSIC CAMP、RAINBOW CHILD2020など様々な野外フェス出演の他、WILD MARMALADEやREBEL FAMILIAとの共演など春夏秋冬屋内外問わず精力的に活動中。
