Hailing from New York, Talibam! Is one of the most potent and fascinating bands in contemporary music. With 17 European tours since ’06, and 20 album releases since ’05, the eight + years of interplay between Matt Mottel and Kevin Shea has created one of the most unique and exciting live shows and some of the most powerfully recorded documents of any era. Talibam! founded in 2003 by Kevin Shea and Matt Mottel have been consistently lauded for their creative output in features from Vice Magazine, The Wire, Pitchfork, The Village Voice, Blow Up, Drowned in Sound,Tinymixtapes and many more.

Sam Kulik (b. 1982) grew up in Massachusetts and moved to New York in 2004 after studying trombone with Robin Eubanks at the Oberlin Conservatory. He is known as much in the world of improvised music as he is in the world of indie rock and he has worked extensively with dance and theater companies that lie somewhere in between. He has toured to over a dozen countries with Nervous Cabaret, Talibam!, Starring, Skeletons, Amanda Palmer, Gloria Deluxe, Capillary Action, and the Mettawee River Theater Company, and has performed locally with Buckwheat Zydeco, John Zorn, Peter Evans, Walter Thompson, Ibrahim Maalouf, and a crazy old guy he met in Hoboken once. In the past year he has performed at Roulette, The Music Hall of Williamsburg, The Stone, The Kitchen, The Whitney Museum, Death By Audio, and Issue Project Room in New York City.
