Multiflora Music Fest Launch Party with Underground System at Tropicalia
Mutliflora Productions will present its first annual DiY international music festival for the whole month of October in multiple venues across Washington, DC. Tonight will mark the end of our fundraising as we look forward to October. We dont mind kicking it off with one of the greatest Afro-beat groups on the planet! The glorious grab bag of internationally-grown members of Underground System (who take their name from a Fela Kuti song) reads like a roll call of musical and cultural diversity. Conceived in Brooklyn, this unstoppable female-fronted corps of neo-afrobeat-deconstructionists has cultivated a sound as inimitable as its members. Hinged on a tight, seamlessly executed stage show, this group astonishes wherever they go, compelling crowds to dance with unbridled vim. To provide a sliver of a glimpse of insight into their unfathomably varied roots, their original dance floor track Bella Ciao received worldwide fanfare, as several DJs and producers cut and remixed it. The song is a retro-futuristic reimagining of an anti-fascist WWII ballad from Italy, sung by the African American-Italian lead singer (Domenica Fossati) who was born in Miami and raised in Venezuela. Citing influences from the South Bronx girl group ESG to the Brit-new wave cult crew XTC, this subterranean organization of deliciously scrambled afrobeat re-inventors continues to soar across broadening musical horizons. Promoting their soon-to-come debut album, Underground System is touring with irresistible vitality, acquiring praise as they spread majestically modified, delectable African beats to dance halls around the country.
