Zegota - Reclaim!

Zegota were an experimental punk band from Greensboro, North Carolina.
The group's third full-length slightly drifted into post-hardcore territory with 2004's '
Not only did it contain an amalgam of punk/hardcore, but even tribal/African rhythms from their drummer who studied abroad, whom also influenced the usage of the kora.

Pretty awesome stuff -- the blending of styles is really more of a separation of styles thrown together making for a nice mix ... def worth hearing to the conclusion for the final three tracks, where the usage of kora and varied instrumentation/song-writing approach becomes a lot more evident.
