instrumental ensemble blending jazz, bluegrass, funk, country and rock and roll with
African beats. Hanuman released five albums, sold over 8,000 recordings and toured

International Film Festival. He has just released his 5th CD, Bluebird, recorded at a small beach village in El
Salvador, and continues to perform throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central America solo,
with his band and with performer /poet Chris Chandler.
•La Cuadra, Magazine and Guide to the Other Side, 2008 Antigua, Guatemala
“Fronted by blues slide guitar virtuoso and vocalist Paul Benoit…Damn they’ve got it. Paul’s got a little Hound Taylor and
Duane in him.”

•Calendar Recommends, Sound Magazine, May 2007 Tost Lounge; Seattle,WA
“The man deserves a packed house.”

•Top DIY Picks, Performing Songwriter Jan/Feb 2006 Combustible CD Review
“Lyrics are rich with imagery. Rhymes are fresh, lead lines are mellow and the whole package is solidly grooving and easy
on the ears.”

•The Music Blog, September 27th, 2005 Paul Benoit is “Combustible”
“He communicates a musical vision with a soulfulness that owes as much to Motown as Fred McDowell. “

•Kotori Magazine, Issue 6 https://www.tradebit.com, 270 degree reviews

“Listen. Relax. Repeat…. an album like this allows one (yes, ME) to tend to your bleeding ears and your broken heart at the
same time with whimsical melodies deliberating life''s eternal reflection.”

•Paul de Barros, Jazz Critic Seattle Times
“The authoritative string-playing of the bluesy Benoit and the bluegrassy Law keep musical interest high, whether they are
playing tunes drawn from Appalachia or India.”

•The Stranger

“All that matters is Hanuman''s blend of jazz, bluegrass, country and rock ''n'' roll with African beats sounds damn good.”
