Biography of Outhouse

Outhouse grew out of a series of improvised-music sessions in 2004...in a North-London outhouse. Since then, the band aims at blurring the line between improvised and written music using various blurring devices.
Based in London, the quartet is a core-member of the Loop Collective and also performs as Outhouse-Ruhabi which is a collaboration with five sabar percussionists from The Gambia...
Their debut album "Outhouse", out in april 2008 on Babel, received 4 star reviews from the Guardian and Jazzwise.

Outhouse Ruhabi is an exciting new ensemble that mixes the West African sound of the Sabar drum with contemporary jazz. Formed in The Gambia at the end of 2007, Ruhabi is a result of a collaborative project between Outhouse, and five traditional Wolof drummers.

Outhouse Ruhabi beautifully stitch together two very different musical genres to create an inspiring and somehow seamless blend of serrated jazz grooves and West African Wolof rhythms that, not only entertain, but also explore territories that have not been ventured into previously. The brainchild of Dave Smith, the drummer for Outhouse and recipient of both the Jerwood Jazz Generation and BBC Performing Arts Fund awards, this project is the culmination of years spent studying West African rhythms. What he, Outhouse and these highly regarded Gambian artists have hit upon is a formula and sound that is truly unique and has united audiences and critics alike in their praise for this groundbreaking project.

Ruhabi will be released on Loop Records on 12th October 2009 and will be promoted through a 15-date tour of the UK with their final gig, and album launch, at Cafe Oto in London.

Expect raw hypnotic grooves, free-flowing melodies and unstoppable energy in these explosive performances from a group at the very top of its game.
