Yes, I! Afro Funké, currently in its sixteenth year, is back for one more afroboogie in 2019! Besides your friendly neighborhood resident deejays, Jeremy Sole and yours truly, English-Jamaican reggae/dancehall star Shinehead headlines the evening with a special selector set alongside partner DJ Papalotl. Plus, in the upstairs Townhouse lounge, our longtime friend DJ Jedi rocks the turntables like only he can. Be there because it’s gonna be a great one!

I’m stoked to be back performing an opening deejay set at the Skirball Cultural Center for their annual Sunset Concerts series! I’ll be behind the turntables setting the vibe for Tamar Ilana & the Ventanas in their Los Angeles debut! Come out at 6:30pm to hear the set; the band goes on around 8pm.
About the band:
Fronted by powerhouse vocalist and dancer Tamar Ilana, the Toronto-based Ventanas reimagine age-old Mediterranean melodies and flamenco grooves.
Inspired by a childhood touring the world with her mother, an ethnomusicologist, Ilana sings about migration and identity in Ladino, Spanish, Bulgarian, Hebrew, French, Romani, and Arabic. Be enchanted by their dynamic mix of contemporary interpretations of ancient ballads and original compositions.
8PM | FREE with RSVP here.
