saturday june 16 | extra ancestral

I’m super excited to have been asked to play records at this second coming of the EXTRA ANCESTRAL show, hosted by LA’s young percussion master, Kahlil Cummings and his CAPOFRESH brand. The evening features Kahlil’s new CAPOFRESH ENSEMBLE project, a ‘supergroup’ made up of some of his favorite local players, as well as BLOCO OBINI, the all-female bloco afro he both leads and instructs. As an extra treat, all the way from Australia, Mr. Quetzal Guerrero aka QVLN, joins the festivities as the evening’s special guest performer! Dance performances by Daunte Fyall, Jahanna Blunt, Rachel Hernandez and Rosangela Silvestre round out the evening but who knows, there are probably more surprises in store!

Check the Facebook Event Page for all the info, and see Farah Sosa’s photographs from the very first show back in February. This night will be just as amazing!
