RECAP: If there were an award for “Most Photogenic Band” at KAABOO, we’d have to give that award to the fresh faced girls of the band Bahari. Definitely one easier acts to photograph at the festival. They were also an act that I previewed for this festival, and my main focus was trying to figure out what they were musically about. The recordings I had heard online revealed a wide ranging influence including both folk and alt rock. I was hoping that by watching their live performance, I would be able to focus my understanding of the band.

When we arrived at their stage, there was a decent sized crowd for an early afternoon set time. The audience definitely leaned more youthful than the Jimmy Buffet crowd the night before, but that was to be expected. The trio took the stage to a warm applause, and they jumped into their music.

While I expected to hear either folk or atl-rock sonics, I was a little surprised to hear their music played with more synthpop elements at KAABOO. They even covered a 21 Pilots song, and I’m guessing that’s the direction they’ve chosen their music will be heading in the future. I still think that this group has a lot of promise. After all, they’re cute, talented (PS: their bass player really knocked it out of the park with her vocals), and it looks like they are having a lot of fun up on stage. But I still think they need find their voice,  whcih will make their music  a little more accessible and a little more authentic. They’re young, they have time to figure out what works, and they have tons of potential wrapped in a lot of promise. I’m looking forward to seeing/hearing what they bring to the table the next time I see them live.
