Chopteeth Afrofunk Big Band

Thu, September 8 @ 7:00 pm-8:30 pm

A LAKEFRONT LIVE HEADLINE EVENT!

Produced by Columbia Festival of the Arts

Chopteeth is a 12-piece Afrofunk orchestra exploring the common groove between the funkiest, most hip-shakin’ West African and American popular music on the planet. The core of the Chopteeth sound is Afrobeat: a big-band funk invented by Fela Kuti in 1970’s Nigeria. Afrobeat is a spicy stew of modern jazz, Yoruba tribal music and burning, James Brown-inspired rhythms.

  • Chicken breast Po Boy (topped with scratch made coleslaw) with fries
