Ancient tongue is a Hip Hop collective of 5 musicians from Long Island, New York who create music from the roots, hearts, and minds. Bringing HIP Hop back to its elements; The MC, the drums, and the breaks, Ancient Tongue continues to create original music forged by the past while focusing on the future. Their live instrumentation, conscious lyrics, and undeniable energy have placed them on stage with such acts as KRS-1, BlackSheep, Grandmaster Caz, RA the Ruggedman, Killer Priest (Wu-Tang), C-Rayz Wallz, Kid Koala, Amon Tobin, etc..Their first full length release "Time Tells Tales" combines the elements of Hip Hop with the traveling twists of Deap One (MC). Produced by DJ Chaotic, this record is founded by the back beat of twin percussionists Ken and Fred Grizlly, and the low end foundation laid by Paul Blaze (bass). This foundation is cut and split by Chaotic, showing that true turntablists are still alive and well in real Hip Hop. With added keys and live sampling, Ancient Tongue is climbing from sea level to mountain top, roots to ridges with unstoppable speed and determination. Next performance is June 14th with Saul Williams on Long Island.
