SOULFEGE
What would you get if Bob Marley were jammin' with The Fugees on a street corner in West Africa ?
 
Afro-Diasporic Groovalicious Funkadociousness!!!
 
Founded by two vocalists/MCs who met in a choir at Harvard, Soulf├Ęge is a vivid new voice in the increasingly monotone world of Urban Music. Fusing a unique blend of Hip Hop, Reggae, Funk & West African Highlife, the critically-acclaimed Afropolitan fusion band has electrified and inspired audiences with driving rhythms, tight harmonies, powerful lyrics and authentic musicianship. Their recent collaborations include tracks with W. African Hip-Life legend Reggie Rockstone, Grammy-winning Dancehall Superstar Bounty Killer and performances with Multi-Platinum, Hip-Hop Group Arrested Development.
 
With a distinctive groove and a message that has spawned a growing, global movement, Soulf├Ęge is poised to redefine the sound and image of Urban Music.
