Created in 2002, Eccodek is the brainchild of Canadian producer, remixer and artist Andrew McPherson. A longtime fan of the exotic sounds and musical traditions pouring out of the African continent, Middle East, South Asia, the Balkans and beyond, Andrew created a musical vehicle to bring him closer to these stunning musical traditions. Eccodek weaves these diverse musical compass points together over a sonic musical gumbo of funk, jazz, electronica, roots and dub.
At present Eccodek has released 7 albums, performed across Canada as a live 6-piece ensemble, received 2 Juno award nominations (Canada's Grammys), won 2 Canadian Music awards for Best World Music Recording, performed before thousands as part of Canada Day celebrations in Trafalgar Square, London England, appeared as the closing musical performance with Great Big Sea and Hawksley Workman before 1.8 million viewers for the 2009 Juno Awards and more.
Eccodek's albums and countless remixes have partnered him with a who's who of the global music scene including, Vieux Farka Touré, Kiran Ahluwalia, Deva Premal, Onkar Singh, Dub Colossus, Dubmatix, Delhi 2 Dublin, Transglobal Underground, Jah Youssouf, Syriana, Desert Dwellers, Jaffa Road, EarthRise SoundSystem, MC Yogi, and Brenda McMorrow.
