859 O'Farrell Street
San Francisco, California 94109

This San Francisco-based 11-piece ensemble has won over audiences with its eclectic, unique sound: a blend of rich, female lead vocals and slamming horn-laden polyrhythmic funk that Global Rhythm Magazine called "a Pan-African mash-up." While the members of Aphrodesia are admirers of West African styles like afrobeat and Highlife, the group's sound has always included touches of funk, dub, Zimbabwean trance, hip-hop and global pop.
