High-energy live music & dance performance featuring top notch break dancers backed by a Soul/R&B band representing the new sound of Seattle (USA).

A great act for festivals, schools, and corporate events, including all-ages audiences. Separate programs on the Roots of Hip Hop in Traditional Cultures are presented under the name TRIBE-olution, which is a collaboration of Global Heat with the world champion b-boys Massive Monkees and world music & dance artists from African, Brazilian, and Asian cultures.

Global Heat has toured nationally and internationally since 2006 to provide high-energy entertainment for festivals, concerts, and other events. Formed as a collaboration of international musicians living in the Pacific Northwest (USA), Global Heat was a featured act at the 2006 Shanghai International Music Festival for a week of performances in China. Based in Seattle (USA), band members have performed in over 25 countries worldwide, including tours of Japan, Thailand, Australia, Malaysia, and Vietnam. Global Heat's cross-generational and cross-genre appeal makes them a favorite of diverse audiences. Global Heat’s live show is along the lines of The Roots and Talib Kweli with the addition of world-class b-boys from Massive Monkees, Unleashed, SoulShifters, and other crews.
