Orchestra Gold: Fronted by the charismatic Malian singer and dancer Mariam Diakité, Orchestra Gold (OG) plays an original stew of African – inspired rock and soul music. Drawing deeply on Mali’s musical history, OG blends analog, rhythmic dance music together with elements of psychedelic soul. With roots Malian drumming and the deep wisdom of Mariam’s vocals, OG moves audiences from the inside out.

Sun Hop Fat: For years Sun Hop Fat has been at the forefront of introducing the unique sounds of Ethiopian Jazz to the masses. The music blends the rhythms of traditional American funk (James Brown, Parliament) and jazz (Yusef Lateef, Miles Davis) with harmonies and melodies from East Africa. The result is an up-tempo groove machine that borrows harmonies from the Middle East. The music focuses primarily on arrangements from the “golden era” of Ethiopian Jazz but includes original compositions as well. This all-star band includes standout musicians from other popular San Francisco Bay Area groups. Sun Hop Fat has developed a solid following throughout Northern California by playing a number of clubs and festivals. The ability of the band to captivate sit down jazz crowds as well as steal the spotlight in prime festival slots, encouraging crowds to get up and dance, makes the group flexible in its appeal and garners support from diverse audiences.
Elektric Voodoo: Elektric Voodoo is a nationally touring band from San Diego, CA led by Scott Tournet, founding member of Grace Potter & The Nocturnals. The band blends classic afrobeat, Latin rhythms, rock & roll, psych, jazz, blues and many other influences into its own unique genre that tastefully straddles the line between modern and vintage.

Elektric Voodoo formed in 2016 and released their debut album later that year, which was met with incredibly positive critical reactions. Glide Magazine says, "tastes of The Flaming Lips, Santana, Fela Kuti, Tame Impala and The Arcade Fire break through atop this soulful collection of songs that are birthed with unlimited potential," while Grateful Web wrote that "by drawing from a variety of rich musical traditions, they have crafted a cohesive album that blurs the lines between genres and eludes classification." Relix Magazine describes the album as "intriguing, enticing, and engaging all at the same time ----- evidence of Elektric Voodoo's ability to cast a hypnotic spell." The band released their second album, Animal, in October 2018, and did a national tour in support of it. They released two singles off of the album, both of which have received positive reviews. In their review of "Animal Pt. 2", the lead single off of their newest album, Glide Magazine describes Elektric Voodoo and their sound as, “a rhythmic howl of righteous grooves, rock tenacity, and experimental noise that recalls elements of Antibalas, Tame Impala, and Kamasi Washington." Since 2016, Elektric Voodoo has toured extensively throughout the U.S. They have shared the stage with a wide variety of artists including Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Anders Osborne, Rebirth Brass Band, Con Brio, Songhoy Blues, Easy Star All Stars, Five Alarm Funk, Polyrhythmics, Orgone, and more.
