About

Muruga & the Cosmic Hoe Down Band is the latest project by Detroit based drummer and percussionist Muruga Booker. Featuring Tony "Strat" Thomas on Guitar, After 54 years of his music career, Muruga wanted to fuse his many styles of music into one that would resonate with his spiritual and musical interests, and communicate his musical roots; a Music that would have the rhythmical heart-beat of Funk and the cosmic freedom of Jazz, and combine his Serbian heritage, African, Eastern Nada Yoga, and shamanic influences with rock, funk, country, blues and his world music roots.

The result is a psychedelic world-music band that really brings the FUNK!
