Bourgeois Mystics is a multi-regional, for-profit, personal growth cult and “genre-defying dance party waiting to explode,” headquartered in Austin, TX. Founded in late 2014 by four acquisitive ascetics, they soon honed a distinct sound, oft described as “Zappa meets OutKast”, and infused their music with the fundamental principle that profit should always trump basic human welfare.
The band has been recognized for their virtuosic musicianship & songwriting as well as their live shows, “an absurdist splatter of funk-rock, hip-hop, and jazz” that sets audiences ablaze with their “psychedelic Monty Python” tongue-in-cheek humor and bombastic energy. Notable accomplishments include sharing a bill with George Clinton, a national tour, over 150 shows, and nominations in the 2018 Austin Music Awards and Austin Music Video Awards.
2019 boasts a new 10-piece line-up, a slew of singles & video content, a fresh stage show, and a new EP titled, Turn On, Tune In, Sell Out (the follow-up to their fan-lauded, critically ignored debut, Eureka!).
Afrobeat/Afro-Pop/Psychedelic/Funk Music from Austin, TX.
“Though Hard Proof and the Golden Dawn Arkestra get all the press in Austin, Khali Haat deserves a seat at the neo-Afrobeat table. The undulating octet masters groove as well as its colleagues, and the pop vocals it layers atop the high-life/funk mantra give it extra spice. See the band’s eponymous 2016 debut for corroboration.” – Michael Toland, Austin Chronicle
“Khali Haat plays a form of Afropop funk, specializing in rhythmic, horn-driven jams. The band is notably tight, able to pull off their hypnotic, circular sound with jazz intensity. Their compositions go from simple, repeated melodies to complex, multi-facet creations, deeply psychedelic, upbeat, and danceable. They even have a few vocal moments, but it’s all about their improvised-sounding instrumental passages that command the band’s far-reaching sound. Their debut record is adventurous, especially for pop-minded ears, but Khali Haat are quick to envelop on headphones and certainly on the live stage…” – operationeveryband.com
