Upstart Hip-hop reggae fusion band Soulfège will be headlining a performance at Santos Party House at 96 Lafayette St. in NYC on Friday May 14th at 9pm.
The concert is the band's first NY performance since their album "Take Back the Mic" debuted in the #8 slot on the JamBands.com/RELIX Magazine radio chart (2/26/10), and a Top 100 chart debut on the JazzWeek World Radio chart.
Launched by Harvard-educated Ghanaian born musician Derrick N. Ashong, Soulfège has garnered numerous accolades including multiple Boston Music Award nominations, and nominations for an Independent Music Award and Boston Urban Music Award. Bandleader & primary songwriter Ashong won the 2007 Billboard Songwriting Contest for Best Hip Hop song ("From The Soul").
"This stuff is 'a real upper' it evokes summer days gone by with positive vibes to come! Go spend your money on it! It is worth it! - Score 9.5 out of 10" writes British record producer Charles Foskett (Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello) in his review of the record.
"Soulfege make[s] politics sexy," says Dave Stewart, multi-platinum pop legend & co-founder of Eurythmics. "They make you want to be part of something that is positive, sensual and wholesome. Check out their fusion of all the groovy things in life. These cats have good taste!"
Soulfège’s message extends beyond the world of music. Bandleader Ashong - also known as DNA - is the host of "The Derrick Ashong Experience" on SIRIUS XM's Oprah Radio. The show is a mash-up of politics, pop-culture, social media, music and the arts, informed by Derrick's experiences and travels across the globe. It airs Saturdays from 12:00 - 3:00 pm ET on Oprah Radio, XM channel 156 and SIRIUS channel 195 and is streamed live on www.OprahRadio.com.
Ashong describes the Soulfège sound as "offering a distinctive groove and a positive message of self-empowerment, thus redefining the sound and image of Urban Music as we challenge a generation to literally Take Back the Mic."
Soulfège will be joined by NY-based, fellow Harvard talents Comandante Zero & JC Cassis.
