Parab Poet & the Hip Hop Hippies began forming in 2013 after Parab the Poet began including alternate instruments into his hip hop music. Beginining with only live percussion accompanying the Poet and his DJ Chaps, it soon after began evolving into a beautiful array of musical instruments. Including a groovy bassist, a vibey violinist, a mandolin & glockenspiel guitarist, a low end soul drummer , a percussionist from the future, a snare cymbal specialist, and a vocalist meets trumpeter, these alternate instruments mixed with a turntablist and an emcee have created something quite unique and flavourful. Making quite a buzz in their home city, in the fall of 2015 they took their sounds across the west, rolling through Western Canada on a 15 date 'Hippies goes West Tour', funded by Creative Saskatchewan. This recent tour has earned the Hippies both fans and friends from their prairie land to the shores of Vancouver Island. Currently the hippies are in the den preparing for their debut album release as an organic hip hop collective.
