Maitri (”my tree”) is a word with roots in Sanskrit, often translated as loving-kindness. Growing out of the Chicago music scene, the project has become a collective songwriting outfit for both Caroline Davis and Ben Hoffmann. Featuring soulful vocals over polyrhythmic and funky grooves, the group also uses experimental sounds and effects to create a lush sonic landscape. Currently performing as both a duo as well as with a full band which includes Sam Weber on bass and Jay Sawyer on drums, Maitri is the soundtrack for the inevitable ushering in of the new world order.
