*Fanfarra Feminina Sagrada Profana, Belo Horizonte, Brazil
The Sagrada Profana band is formed by 9 musicians who united to exalt great female icons that made or make history in the music scene. Our concept is intimately linked to feminism and aims to give voice to women through art, as well as highlighting the struggle for gender equality and emancipation of women, using music as the main instrument capable to communicate in different ways, acting transcendentally to the unification of ideas and social transformation.
*Dawn Drake & ZapOte Batucada
American percussionist, bassist and singer-songwriter Dawn Drake leads this mobile Street Samba ZapOte parade which plays a mix of Samba from Rio, Samba Reggae, Funk and Trinidadian grooves. She and her group perform globally and you can find her original music including new singles at www.itunes.com/dawndrake as well as on Spotify and Amazon as Dawn Drake.
*Dingonek Street Band
Dingonek Street Band is a Brooklyn-based brass band dedicated to human culture and sonic adventure. Built on the celebratory energy and raw spontaneity of the second-line brass band tradition, Dingonek has created a funky, high-energy party music all its own by absorbing and reworking elements of Afrobeat, Ethio-jazz, punk rock, free jazz, and Balkan brass music.
Underground Horns is a Brooklyn based brass band playing Afro Funk Latin New Orleans grooves and beyond. AllAboutJazz called their 2009 debut record FUNK MONK “kick-ass dance music…that brushes up against psychedelia…with shots of funky brass juice.” They are “…cooking audio gumbo…our special recipe includes some funk, jazz, hip hop mixed with brass band traditions spiced up with African and other world rhythms… MUSIC FOR THE PEOPLE!”
