Cultural Writing. Multimedia. Music. Thomas Rain Crowe & The Boatrockers, founded in in 1995, is an original and ground-breaking North Carolina-based world-music, spoken-word super-band that features dynamic performances from highly-accomplished musicians. In an East/West performance that blends, perfectly, the traditional acoustic music of the Middle East (Iran, Iraq, Turkey, India) and modern electronic technology, The Boatrockers have been publicly praised by such icons of the music industry as Pete Townshend of The Who and saxophonist Joy Harjo of Poetic Justice. This eclectic and inventive eight-member ensemble--playing all original music with songs by award-winning songwriter Chris Rosser, as well as Crowe's translations of 14th century Persian poet Hafiz--brings a new and modern look and sound to the world-beat genre and its interest in ancient traditions.
