Chopteeth Afrofunk Big Band
A LAKEFRONT LIVE HEADLINE EVENT!
Produced by Columbia Festival of the Arts
This event will feature a fully curated food and drink menu by a local restaurant (check back for details!).
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.
