Eight Gigs: Afrofunk Experience
Sat., Dec. 10, 9 p.m., The Torch Club, $8
The eclectic Afrofunk Experience comes to Sacramento this Saturday to play the Torch Club. Self-described as “an ambrosial mix of musical interpretations influenced by the African diaspora,” this approachable group delivers with an amalgam of afrobeat, funk, jazz, reggae, world fusion and, hell, everything in between. Originally performing behind frontman Sila Mutungi, Afrofunk Experience has kept going strong since he went solo in 2010. From the cheeky, funk-centric “Mad Money Woes” to the groovy, melancholic “Istanbul,” expect to an earful of favorites from the group’s 2012 album, Never Be the Same.
