Just a few weeks ago, The Mantras hosted their 6th annual Mantrabash in Ferguson, NC. The band played four sets over three days of music, which also included performances from EOTO, TAUK, Ozric Tentacles, Consider the Source and more!

While all four of The Mantras’ sets from the festival are available to stream/download, we wanted to spotlight their special “Talking Dead” set with music of the Talking Heads and the Grateful Dead. Featuring keyboardist Bernie Worrell, who was a founding member of Parliament-Funkadelic and a contributor to the Talking Heads’ catalog, this was one great performance!

Check out “The Other One>Drums” below, or head to the Bandcamp page to purchase a download of this exciting performance, along with all of the band’s great sets throughout the weekend. The “Talking Dead” setlist can be seen below.
