Show Info

?Generating a well-deserved buzz in NYC?s exploding afrobeat scene, Zongo Junction electrifies dance floors wherever they perform. The Village Voice describes their live show as ?Sheer energy with the force of a tractor-trailer that roars with power and noise.? With five horns, and a six-piece rhythm section, audiences can?t help but move no matter where the band is playing.

If the Talking Heads produced a Fela Kuti record of Sun Ra?s music, the product would probably sound something like Brooklyn?s Zongo Junction, and in an industry where it has become commonplace to watch bands perform with laptops & backing tracks instead of live musicians, Zongo Junction takes the stage 11 strong. ?The only thing Zongo Junction has to do to start a legitimate dance party is show up and plug in ? anyone within a square block earshot of this Ford-tough funk factory would be hard pressed not to join in the hoopla? says the Bay Area?s SF Station.?

Give them a listen-

This is music created out of a passion for the deep meditative grooves found in reggae that are both grounding and uplifting.?
