M.A.K.U. Soundsystem
M.A.K.U. Soundsystem
Comprised of 8 members, hailing mostly from Colombia, M.A.K.U. SoundSystem makes big music that begins in traditional Afro-Colombian rhythms and ends somewhere in the punk-jazz stratosphere. Clarinet, trombone, sax, guitarra, and Latin percussion supplement a rambunctious, driving rock core, creating a sound familiar enough to be danceable but always surprising.

Mwenso and The Shakes
Mwenso and The Shakes
Mwenso and the Shakes are a unique troupe of global artists who present music that merges the highest form of entertainment AND artistry while commanding a formidable timeline of jazz and blues expression. Originating from Sierra Leone, London, South Africa, Greenwich Village, Madagascar, France, Jamaica, South Florida, Hawaii the Shakes all now call Harlem their home. Taking from the stylings of James Brown and many other African American musical legends – Michael Mwenso leads an electrifying show the NY Times calls “intense, prowling, and ebullient.”
