BIOGRAPHY

Unexpectedly conceived in Miami on 31 December 2003, Haanumaan is a musical and theatrical monkey rock project incubating in Wisconsin's frozen tundra, Southeast Asia's masked dramas, Germany's Teutonic Studios, global psytrance scenes, and the Seacoast's Live Free or Die vibe. Its goals are musical creation, spiritual exploration, and the culminating realization of a collaborative traveling stage show based on Cambodian and Thai versions of the Sanskrit epic, the Ramayana.
