EMEFE Brings the Funky Grooves to Kingston

In addition to laying down the rhythms for Brooklyn’s Antibalas and Superhuman Happiness, drummer Miles Arntzen leads the 10-piece collective EMEFE. While the meat of the band’s sound shares the heavy Afrobeat influences of Arntzen’s other outfits, the horn-heavy EMEFE throws in some unexpected stylistic elements—garage soul organ, distorted no wave guitar—to create a spicy, spiky danceable stew all its own. And that simmering blend will be served up hot when the group plays Kingston’s BSP Lounge next week.

Open wide, 'cuz here’s a funky, funky, fuh-hunky spoonful:

Also on the bill is Mad Satta, a slammin’, a femme-fronted soul/R&B octet “that combines the sounds of old school soul music with hip-hop, rock, and jazz to create an original sound that has been turning heads since its inception.”

EMEFE and Mad Satta will perform at BSP Lounge in Kingston on September 1 at 8pm. Tickets are $7. For more information, call (845) 481-5158 or visit http://bspkingston.com/.
