The San Francisco Chronicle proclaimed Sila as the "Kenyan Funk Master" and The San Franciso Magazine dubbed him as the "James Brown of Africa." Sila and The Afrofunk Experience have exploded onto the Bay Area world music scene with an irresistible blend of traditional African and Afro-Latin rhythms, slinky guitar, and Sila's syrupy Swahili and English vocals. The five-piece also throws some crucial reggae skank and hip-hop swagger into the mix, resulting in an upbeat, multiculti celebration that's guaranteed to keep you glued to the dance floor.
Joining Sila and the Afrofunk Experience will be SambaDa. A SambaDa show is no ordinary concert. It is an immersion into Brazilian culture of the past and present. SambaDá is an explosive musical group that is rapidly inspiring audiences with its unique mixture of Brazilian samba and funky latin dance grooves. From the blissful rhythms of samba to hip-hop riffs, from bossa nova ballads to salsa, SambaDa?s tunes are playful, vital, and energetic: they make you dance and they make you sing, they are both intimate and exuberant DJ Jeremiah from Liberia spinning worldbeat dance music and the super sexy dancers - the Afrofunk Sisters This is an event not to be missed! BRING YOUR DANCING SHOES!
