Another successful event was held at the Vex Arts located at 5240 Alhambra Avenue, Los Angeles, California. This time it is a music event entitled Afrobeat No Go Die!. Expertly handled by the La Mancha Gallery team in charge of a series of musical events coupled with eclectic sounds and world beat to be performed at the The Vex Arts on a monthly basis, this particular event was held on the 8th of February year 2014.
The party started at 7 o’clock in the evening and showcased an afrobeat music which is the modern genre of the West Africa. The sound of Afrobeat is formed with influences of traditional Yoruba music and Ghanaian highlife with a mix of jazz, soul and funk to make the sound more modern. Few bands were included in the line-up and for this event we chose the best of the best underground musicians in Los Angeles.
It was the first in the series of music events in Vex Arts. The following bands and Dj’s were part of the spectacular event: Mexico 68 Afrobeat Orchestra, The Catchatones, Kid Gusto and Richard E..
We wanted to establish a model for future events by combining 2 independent bands with 2 Dj’s. Mexico 68 Afrobeat Orchestra is made up of 13 members based in Eastside California and more focused with funk style. The Catchatones play with different sounds and genre like soul, hip-hop, rock steady, jazz and funk. Kid Gusto and Richard E. are both DJs.
These musicians have already impressed a lot of audiences and listeners Worldwide. The event was a great turn out, many supporters and new fans are waiting and looking forward to the next event. By the way, they have their own websites for music samples and complete playlist.
