D’DAT is a multicultural group that mixes the uniquely American musical traditions of the native southwest, jazz and hip-hop. National touring artist Def-i's intelligent, poetic lyrics and hip-hop style blends with the hard-driving instrumental fire of trumpet player Delbert Anderson, the deep funk of drummer Nicholas Lucero and the explorative and expanding groove of Mike McCluhan on bass. D’DAT combines it all to give audiences an experience like no other. This modern sound not only attracts listeners but also tells a story of cultural tradition. D’DAT has been featured on NPR, Yahoo, MIC.com, SiriusXM and TEDTalks.
