Fusion

lapis lazzuli

Lapis Lazuli are a band from Canterbury, UK formed in late 2009 they are 5 people unified by a concept of music unbound by the limits of pigeon-holing, and brought together by the willingness to fuse and transverse genres from across time and place.
Bombastic beats and global grooves are combined with a rich tapestry of texture and melody created by the twin guitars, synth, flute, trumpet and digeredoo sounds, telling ancient stories from the vault of their collective influences.
