It is the final Saturday of the semester before finals, and what better way to kick off the night than to catch two-sets of Zongo Junction at The Sett. The band features a five-piece horn section, and a six-piece rhythm section, and are bound to get you dancing.
Exploding out of the New York City Afrobeat-scene, Zongo Junction has mastered the craft of laying down infectious grooves in front of audiences across the country. Formed in 2009, this 11-piece band, which holds its roots in Brooklyn, New York, brings a freight train of energy every time they step onto the stage. The band, whose Fela Kuti influence oozes from each horn blast, also combines the numerous influences from each of its members, which range from Rock to Hip-Hop, and everything in between.
Zongo Junction goes on at 9 PM and you don’t want to miss either set of this rising star of the burgeoning Afrobeat scene.
