The acoustic worldbeat duo Patchouli is comprised of Wisconsin songwriter Julie Patchouli and guitarist Bruce Heckles. They light up the air with sparkling acoustic sounds and their powerful contagious chemistry. Patchouli’s songwriting is “New American Folk” blending elements of folk, pop, flamenco and jazz with world beat rhythms, and their sound has been described as “the harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel meet the guitar brilliance of the Gipsy Kings”.
