Salmagundi serves up a tasty blend of rock, post-rock, ambient and dub.
Salmagundi are bassist Sangwoo Lee and drummer Marcos Fernandes. Lee, born in Korea, had initially come to study music in Japan while Fernandes, born in Japan, had recently returned to his native soil after many years in California. The two met in Tokyo and quickly recognizing their shared musical affinities began playing as a rhythm section and eventually decided to work on some tunes together. They entered the studio in early Spring of 2011 and with the help of a handful of capable friends, recorded the songs, mostly instrumental, which range in style from rock to post-rock, ambient to dub. Salmagundi is the result of this collaboration.
Lee has since been conscripted into the navy and is scheduled to serve until May of 2013. Salmagundi will release the songs digitally over the coming months, culminating in a full-length cd and ensuing live performances and tours following Lee's release.
Following basic training, Lee is stationed with the Korea Navy Band. He will be reporting on his progress whenever possible via the Salmagundi site and blog.
