Underground Horns


 
In "Almost Blue", their highly anticipated third album, Underground Horns 
are mixing Afro Funk, Hip Hop, New Orleans, Haitian and Ethio Jazz elements into a dance inducing audio gumbo. They are calling their trademark sound" MUSIC FOR THE PEOPLE!"

AllAboutJazz called their debut record FUNK MONK "kick-ass dance music…that brushes up against psychedelia…with shots of funky brass juice."

In a review of their second album BIG BEAT Ken Waxman called them "an unapologetic party band with brains...with tonal inflections from the Big Easy, central Africa, the Maghreb and the Baltic states."
Underground Horns performed internationally in Brazil, Egypt and Germany. 
Here in NY they make people dance in subway stations, parks and at venues ranging from nublu to Lincoln Center, the Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival to NYC Winter Jazz Festival.

Brown Rice Family

 

Brown Rice Family is a multi national band with members hailing from Japan, Jamaica, Haiti, Nigeria, South Africa and USA.
This world roots band normally fuses genres but this time around they just simply fell in love with the "Latin Goes Ska "vibe. The song was originally composed by the Skatalites in Jamaica in 1964.
 Now fifty years later BRF decided to rearrange "Latin Goes Ska" and adding lyrics to carry the message of "ORGANIC LOVE"

In this video the band features America’s got talent winner Kenichi Ebina and internationally acclaimed dance teacher/choreographer Pat Hall and her Brooklyn dance community.
The world is plagued with social and political problems and for this reason most people have lost compassion, organic love, and the acceptance of individual difference. With "Latin Goes Ska" the band uses music and video as a vehicle to spread the message of global solidarity, letting all people know that out of many we are one!

Kenichi Ebina replied when asked about this song, "It’s just a fun song without thinking too deeply, you know? There’s a difference in style in terms of music and dance, but it exists everywhere and universally it touches something very humanly instinctive. I think we’re one step closer to world peace, if we can all enjoy dancing to this kind of music."
