Week 4 of the Ridgway Summer Concert Series
Exploding from the center of Brooklyn's vibrant Afrobeat scene, Zongo Junction electrifies dance floors wherever they perform. Packed with four horns and a five-piece rhythm section, the band gets audiences moving no matter where they play. If Talking Heads produced a Fela Kuti record of Sun Ra’s music, the product would probably sound something like this psychedelic Afrobeat outfit.
Opening Act: Ridgway's own The Royal We describe their style as "Music to get your Chi up!"
