CHAMPION SURFER AND ACCOMPLISHED MUSICIAN ROB MACHADO ANNOUNCES US CONCERT DATES
MELALI:THE DRIFTER SESSIONS SURF FILM TOUR & MUSICAL PERFORMANCE BY THE MELALI SESSIONS BAND

Cardiff by the Sea, CA – Champion surfer Rob Machado announces a spring run of US tour dates in support of his film Melali:The DIrifter Sessions.  Rob Machado and his band Melali Sessions Band will kick of their tour on April 5th at the Belly Up in Solana Beach followed by a west and east coast run of shows including Slim’s (San Francisco) on April 13th, the historic Troubadour (Los Angeles) on April 14th, and a special performance on April 30th at National Geographic Live in Washington, DC as part of their ongoing music themed programs.  Complete list of tour dates below.

A throwback to the rootsy surf films of the 70’s, fans will experience a very special collaboration of film and music during this short run.  The film, Melali:The Drifter Sessions, showcases some of the world’s best wave riders on the best waves Indonesia has to offer.  Adding to the level of intensity, the film will be accompanied by the live performance of the score.  Machado and his long time friend and fellow musician Jon Swift spearhead the musical collective, which includes musicians Todd Hannigan, Fernando Apodaca, Jesse Seibenberg and Sam Bolle.

“When we premiered The Drifter across the country, the best part of the night was the live improvisation with the band to the surf bonus footage,” Machado says.  “That inspired us to make another movie with the unreleased surf footage and record some music as the score.”

Produced by Machado and director Taylor Steele (the godfather of modern surf film), Melali:The Drifter Sessions features Rob Machado –one of the most stylish and skilled wave riders of our time.  Melali returns to the fundamentals of surf cinematography by focusing on the surfing experience, the artful relationship between man and surf, and the sharing of this experience with good friends.

Composed in a barn in rural southern California and recorded at a Brotheryn Studios in Ojai, the score is a diverse mix of musical composition ranging from simple ballads to full band improvisations that captures a broad spectrum of moods tailored to the soulful and dynamic surfing.
