Khu.éex':The Magic of Noise A feature documentary

As of May 2024, we're in the last steps of post-production with plans to release later this year starting with select film festivals. Help us reach our final fundraising goals by donating or attending our art walk event on June 6th in Pioneer Square! To find out more about the band visit:

Michael Kleven (Director) and Elke Hautala (Producer) began filming the local Seattle band Khu.éex' (which means potlatch or "a sharing of culture" in the Tlingit language) in 2013. It all began from a chance meeting between internationally renowned glass artist and musician Preston Singletary with legendary music innovator Bernie Worrell (Parliament Funkadelic, Talking Heads). Preston mentioned an idea for combining indigenous music/cultural performance with jazz and funk. Now, over a decade later, their story is ready to be told...
