Elektric Voodoo is a "World Beat Rock & Roll" band from San Diego, CA that blends classic afrobeat, Latin, rock & roll, psych, jazz, blues and many other influences into it's own unique genre that tastefully straddles the line between modern and vintage.
The band started when Scott Tournet (founding member of Grace Potter & The Nocturnals) started writing new material after leaving the Nocturnals. "Musically I wanted to try something a little different than what I'd done before. I wanted to make music with an undeniable rhythmic pulse but I really didn't want to make computer driven dance music as these past few years that seems to be much of what I hear." To accomplish that, Tournet tapped into the rhythms of West Africa, Latin America, and World music for inspiration. What came out the other side though was not just a world music project.
Since releasing their debut album in 2016, Elektric Voodoo has toured throughout the U.S. and has shared the stage with a wide variety of artists including Anders Osborne, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Songhoy Blues, Con Brio, Easy Star All Stars, Five alarm Funk, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, The Brothers Comatose, and Orgone.
