New Snarky Puppy Single “Xavi” Available Now

The first single from our new album, “Immigrance,” is now available worldwide. After three years without making a record, it feels so good to put something new out into the world. This track, “Xavi,” is inspired by a beautiful experience we had in Morocco at last year's Gnawa Music Festival in Essaouira, sharing a week of rehearsal and performance with the country's most respected guimbre master, Hamid El Kasri حميد القصري, and his incredible group of musicians. We hope you enjoy it (and feel beat one in the right place).     -Michael League


The full album “Immigrance” drops March 15.
