Yama & The Karma Dusters

Yama & The Karma DustersFrom: Chicago, IL, USA

There is very little known about Yama & The Karma Dusters. This Chicago-based band only ever released one album. Up From The Sewers, released in 1971, is a politically charged album, featuring some excellent folk-rock/psychedelic rhythms. Yama & The Karma Dusters were Howard Berkman (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Marion L. Favors (percussion), Jerry Field (violin), Alan Goldberg (drums), Dick Larson (piano), Karen Manter (keyboards), Neal Pollack (bass), and Jack Sullivan (bass). Up From The Sewers was put together as a response to the Kent State massacre in Ohio. The album is extremely radical, and left a sense of bitterness within the listener.
