The boyhood best friends of Darren Weiss and Danny Presant have been performing across the country since 2008 when they formed the group PAPA while still in college in New York City. Ever since then, they have been perfecting the charged energy infusion of quick melodic musings and a base instinct of meeting foot to ground. Weiss remarks on how they have been called “necessary music” in that they “satisfy the soul”, we would have to whole heartedly agree. The anticipation of watching their live performance builds as so many claim it to be a perfect exhibition of immense passion and energy. Get a glimpse here with their music video for the single “I Am The Lion King”.
