From digging into desert grooves with Tuaregs on the rooftops of Timbuktu to all-night trance sessions with Sufi masters in the mountains of Morocco, percussionist, composer and globetrotter Orpheo McCord has traversed a wide musical landscape over the past 20 years.

​Early on his musical journey, McCord discovered his deep love for the sacred rhythms of Africa and South America. This drove him to deepen his studies in Ghana, Mali, Cuba and Morocco.

​McCord’s worldliness ensured that he made a name for himself, recording and touring as drummer for the influential post-punk English group, The Fall and prolific songwriter, Cass McCombs. In 2007 he'd begin his ten year career with the Grammy Award winning group Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. In that time he also performed with other luminaries such as The Flaming Lips, Ima Robot, Fool's Gold, Tinariwen, Master Musicians of Jajouka, Brightblack Morning Light, and Harper Simon amongst others.

Presently, Orpheo is immersed in resonant percussion and its use in creating music that calms the nervous system and allows the listener space to go into a meditative state. He has developed a unique sonic palette using effected marimba and an array of indigenous instruments he has hand selected on his travels around the world. McCord’s ever evolving exploration in the integration of indigenous musics as well as his passionate curiosity to push sonic boundaries allow him to stand out both as a musician and composer.

​McCord, who now lives in Ojai, California with his wife and two children, has just completed his debut solo album, "Recovery Inhale", due for release in January 2018.
