UPR!SE – REVOLUTIONARY SOUNDS FROM FELA TO THE FUNK
Africa is the root. Whenever one explores the numerous branches and tributaries of American music, one is always brought back to the initial driving source which is Africa, the motherland of everything ranging from jazz, soul, Latin, funk, R&B, Brazilian, rock and Reggae. These musical vibrations continue to resonate, evolve and mutate; each drawing on one another to create an ongoing organic tapestry of rhythmic variation and pollination.
It is only fitting therefore that The Shrine, named after Fela’s own nightclub, pays tribute to the career and legacy of the father of AfroBeat. Starting Wednesday, June 9 The Shrine is hosting a weekly residency titled ‘UPR!SE – Revolutionary Sounds from Fela to the Funk’ with DJs Tone B Nimble and King Scratch (aka Joe Bryl).
