Afro beat / Punk-Funk / Jazz Funk
Taking their name from a famous song by Fela Kuti, these six musicians, led by a fiery flautist singer, are children of Afrobeat. And, as good New Yorkers, they confront the genre with the multiple sounds of the Big Apple, in the footsteps of ESG and LCD Soundsystem: thus, disco, punk, house, no wave and other frequencies of the great world sound merge in a huge boiling cauldron.
Underground System is the freshest sounding band in New York City. Not only do they embody the vibrant culture of New York, they’re also a universal band with hypnotic, infectious grooves that come from all over the world
