Funky Elephant Festival
It’s funk time! The Funky Elephant festival is happening this weekend in Helsinki and it presents a good dose of funk, soul, reggae, ska, hip hop and world music. It’s two nights to dance, dance, dance.
One of the most exciting shows will be the performance by Helsinki-Cotonou Ensemble, the group that brings together musicians from Finland and Benin in West Africa. Their second album sees an international release this month and it includes some unstoppable rhythms. Get ready to raise your hands and stomp your feet.
Besides the Helsinki-Cotonou Ensemble, I would not miss the thrilling elegant funk & soul supergroup The Northern Governors, who are releasing their second album today. Check out below their new single.
