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!
Yo! This event is going to be madness! Our two camps haven’t done an event together since the summer of 2016 when Grand Park brought us in to rock the entire 4th of July Block Party on the main stage for all of Los Angeles. If you were there, you’ll remember what an incredible crowd we had, shaking their bodies all afternoon into the evening, line dancing, zumba dancing and even propelling themselves into the air cheerleader style!!
Save the date! THURSDAY MAY 31st 🙂
P.S. On the flier above, as on the turntables on Afro Funké, it’s a Glenn Red x Jeremy Sole collabo.
