Riddim Continuum celebrates the fusion and evolution of a wide array of styles rooted in African rhythms and the African diaspora. From R&B to Afrobeat, to reggae, rock and beyond, this event promises to deliver some of NYC’s finest emerging and established talent.
Artist/activist Synead (Nichols) opens up the night with her soulful melodies, followed by the pulsing rhythms and feel-good vibes of the visionary Ras Majesty (aka Ty Hardman) and The New Vibration Band. Local misfits, Little Shaman, come in third with the release of their self-produced reggae-soul-fusion EP, “Premonitions” (available online 9/17); and headlining the evening is none other than Leon Kaleta (long-time guitarist for Fela Kuti) and his showstopping, body-shaking Zozo Afrobeat Band. Newcomer DJ lil rounds out the night, spinning from start to finish, ensuring that the Riddim Continuum will never let the beat drop. This is one dynamic bill you surely don’t want to miss.
