Derrick N. Ashong & Soulfège Live at Drom
Derrick N. Ashong & Soulfège 


 

Derrick N. Ashong & Soulfège are a critically-acclaimed, refreshingly original group of musicians that blend Hip-Hop, Reggae, Funk, World Beat and West African Highlife into an integral musical mélange of style and substance.  This dynamic six-piece ensemble combines driving rhythms, authentic musicianship, crisp harmonies and provocatively elevating lyrics into a joyous ‘Afropolitan’ fusion.
 
After a recent performance at Club de Madrid’s gala dinner honoring former President Bill Clinton with the Democratic Leadership Award; the competitive selection of their animated short film Love Rain Down (a cut from their latest highly successful CD, AFropolitan) for an April screening at the prestigious Palm Beach International Film Festival; launching a national commercial & public radio broadcast campaign (charting in the top 50 in the national JazzWeek World Music Charts); and reaching over 50,000 downloads for their Million Download Campaign for 2012 (available at www.derrickashong.com), Derrick N. Ashong & Soulfège are now scheduled to appear at Drom, on September 13th, 2012.
 
As Vanity Fair’s Creative Development Editor wrote on VanityFair.com:  “Here are musicians, poised with a positive vibe and with lyrics so uplifting that you actually believe, if only for one night, that . . . a new world mood may emerge from the street and the Net, somehow defying the odds—a spirit of promise and hope and harmony, a spirit that denies dissonance.  Soulfège lets us dream such sweet dreams, in vibrant colors.”
