CalArts Dance Party

Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 6:00pm

CalArts, The Wild Beast

MUSIC: A bouncy, high-energy revue of large alumni dance bands drawing from a range of CalArts programs and influences: African drumming and dance, Balkan rhythms and soul, and American funk, soul and RnB. The evening starts with the Sogo Takeover, a 12-piece Afrobeat orchestra that fuses collective improvisation with irresistible dance rhythms, big as a Mack truck and twice as loud. John Macy & The Heavy Hand kicks out heavy grooves in a modern rhythm & blues style. They touch the hearts and get bodies moving through emotional love songs and burning up-tempo jams. The Heavy Hand's repertoire contains everything from soulful, original compositions to Hitsville USA and Stax Records classics. The evening ends with Orkestar MÉZÉ, Southern California's premier original Balkan brass band. A raucous, joyous show where fans of all ages and walks of life dance to the band's trademark groovy peasant funk, original high-energy electro-acoustic brass sound mixing American funk, soul and jazz with traditional Bulgarian and Balkan music.
