About the Artist

Genre: World

"This ideal party band . . . also bears messages of togetherness. . . . The rhythms of Indian Ragas and reggae have striking similarities, while the Latin, African and contemporary funk that's spicing this one-sound, many-voices stew fits the all-world melange to a tee. Whatever your background, there's music here for you."

- Geoff Chapman, Toronto Star

The 5-Time Winner of The Chicago Music Awards, FUNKADESI is capturing the attention of the U.S. and the rest of the globe. Funkadesi has been hailed by Time Magazine, and even caught the attention of U.S. Senator Barack Obama, who notes: “Funkadesi really knows how to get a crowd going. I can't say enough how energizing this band is. There's a lot of funk in that desi!”

Funkadesi proudly hails from Chicago, representing the diverse multi-ethnic communities within the city. What distinguishes Funkadesi as a group is each band member’s unique and uncompromised cultural/musical contribution merging to create one unifying sound and vision. With their not-to-be-missed live shows and visible racial and musical diversity, the band is ideally suited for festivals, nightclubs, world music concerts, weddings & commitment ceremonies, corporate events, as well children’s programs. Funkadesi’s one-world sound, roots-watering vision, and positive vibe makes for a unique and compelling musical force.
