Event description
Electro Arabic Dabke (Shamstep) band 47SOUL brings a party with a message.

About this Event

Hot off a summer tour of Europe’s big summer festivals, and on their way to a U.S. debut at Globalfest in January and Austin’s South by Southwest, 47SOUL will turn the BRIC House Ballroom into a party with a message.

An Electro Arabic Dabke (Shamstep) band formed in Amman Jordan in 2013, 47SOUL’s members are rooted in Bilad Al-Sham, spanning the divides from Amman to the Galilee to Ramallah and the rest of the Palestinian Diaspora. Their lyrics, mixing Arabic and English, call for celebration and freedom in the struggle for equality.

Underground System is a quintessential New York City band. A convergence of musical and cultural influences, the unstoppable female-fronted group of neo-afrobeat deconstructionists have cultivated a sound as inimitable as its members. Robbing American Afrobeat of its derivative formalism, UNDERGROUND SYSTEM continues to reinvent their brand of global dance music, remaining a force determined to recreate, redefine, and reconstruct.

Brooklynite DJ Bembona (Vibras NYC) opens the night with her radical blend of Afro-Diaspora sounds.

BRIC House Sessions

The spirit of the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival is alive in BRIC’s Fort Greene headquarters with world-class artists reflecting the diversity of Brooklyn in a must-do Thursday concert series. BRIC House Sessions draws its talent from a bold and eclectic array of musical genres and world cultures, featuring opening acts by local DJs and musicians, and headlining sets from internationally-renowned artists. Set against the backdrop of BRIC’s contemporary art gallery and the BRIC House Ballroom—one of the best spaces for live music in Brooklyn—each evening delivers a unique multi-sensory experience.
