Hailing from North Carolina, Ahleuchatistas blithely borrow from a shade of progressive music tinted with jazz, funk, and avant-garde rock. This eclectic instrumental trio bring an energy and drive built on sharp tempo changes and dynamic shifts in rhythm. THE SAME AND THE OTHER, on John Zorn's Tzadik label, is a re-issue of the band's second album.
