Biography

Psalters play an underground experimental world music style borrowing influences from around the world; Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and even old United States slave spirituals from the US are influences. Earlier recordings saw them experimenting with sample based tracks and musique concrète. They have had a revolving door policy with players, having had some 100 musicians pass through the project since its inception. Psalters are Christian in their outlook but have had Jewish and Muslim players in their lineup over the course of their history. Less about being a band and more about an identity as a transient nomadic group of players, they are influenced by the temple musicians of Ancient Israel whose sole purpose was to sing to the glory of God.

    Soundgasm of worship affixed on the breath of the Ruach HaKodesh in transition and translation of tribal elimination and basar echad in Moshiach, all spiraling into His everything of illuminated mystery that I cannot say cause I do not know.... but I will soon!

    i can not get enough, the music flowing with them has been tapped in with the origin of love and beauty resulting in pure worship of it all. I would love to be part of the musical dance if i ever get to be at one of their shows. To float in the sounds that surround everything. It would be a dream.

    They played three hours away from me two weeks ago and I found out about it yesterday. But it's okay, because they'll be at a Christian anarchist conference in Philadelphia in October. It'll be awkward for me, but it'll be amazing to see them.
