Over the past few years, Snarky Puppy has gone from undefinable semi-obscurity to multi-Grammy Award-winning, yet still undefinable, success.

The 19-strong ensemble can be loosely described as jazz-fusion, but that does not do justice to the band’s repertoire. Its Grammy wins are evidence enough of the weakness of this classification: one for best R&B performance for the group’s orchestration and performance of Lalah Hathaway’s “Something” (2013), and two for best contemporary instrumental album for “Sylva” (2015) and “Culcha Vulcha” (2016).
