Making their return to Gem and Jam this year is one of a kind electro-jam powerhouse, Papadosio. Heavily driven by improv, Papadosio prods the possibilities and paints in soundscapes that will often ignite the emotions and stir the mind. Pulling from every side of the spectrum this band conjures and creates a space for all to interact and revile in the now. Their music emits a tone of positivity and comes coupled with an inspiring message to match. Displaying an impressive range of skills drawling from various musical influences and styles, all the members of Papadosio are highly creative and collectively have calculated a unique and signature sound! Be sure not to miss their performance this January in the desert!
