This week’s Hippo

Roots of Creation goes back to their roots:

From its beginning as a Franklin Pierce College party band, Roots of Creation rose through the club scene to become a staple on the regional festival circuit. The four-piece band mixes improvisational island rhythms with electronic elements and loop treatments for a highly original sound they call “dubtronica.”

Drummer Mike Chadinha uses an electronic drum pad, while keyboard player Talmadge “Tal” Pearson also employs a full range of synthetic effects. Guitarist and lead singer Brett Wilson’s vocals are fed through a delay pedal.

It’s no ordinary reggae band.

“We have a lot of stuff going on,” Wilson said recently from his home in Milford.
