Interminable is a Philly-based futuristic fusion project that explores our connections as diasporic peoples through original music in Spanish and English, weaving together the common threads of improvisation and swing from Mexican traditional son jarocho music, jazz, rock, funk, and electronic music.
This innovative tapestry of sounds is expressed through the band’s unique combination of instruments. Ximena Violante (Vivir Quintana, Renee Goust) sings and plays the electric guitar and jarana, a guitar-like instrument from the afroindigenous son jarocho tradition of Mexico. Marty Gottlieb-Hollis (Martronimous) on trumpet and St. Clair Simmons on trombone join forces as a horn section. Matt Jernigan on drums and Yeho Bostick (Circadian Rhythms, Darlingtyn) on bass solidify the rhythmic backbeat.
Born out of a chance encounter on the train in 2015 which led to their debut a week later, opening for nationally-renowned cumbia group, Viento Callejero, the band has amassed an impressive portfolio, sharing stages with nationally- and internationally-recognized acts including La Santa Cecilia, Radio Jarocho, Mare Advertencia Lirika, DJ Precolumbian, Jarana Beat, Lady Moon & The Eclipse, and Moor Mother.
Their debut album, rebirth::renacer, was released in November of 2018, bringing together musicians from across the US and Mexico. You can listen or download at their bandcamp or Spotify, or check out the video for Preludio + El Agua, featuring indigenous Zapoteca rapper Mare Advertencia Lirika.
