Musical Showcase – Superhuman Happiness
Superhuman Happiness formed in a borrowed basement in Greenpoint, Brooklyn circa 2008. Today, the group is made up of three principle artists and a healthy list of collaborators from New York and beyond. Dia Luna, primary vocalist, Eric Biondo and Stuart Bogie, multi instrumentalists and counter vocalists, form a union of balanced approaches and unique emotional perspectives. Their music is influenced by the rich history of less commercially oriented popular music from around the globe, and their live performances incorporate elements of improvisation, surreal comedy, performance art, and strong melodies and danceable rhythms expressed through an ecstatic audience/performer embrace. Trumpets, saxes, synths and grooves rooted in '80s electronica propel a melodic architecture that balances mind and body.
