Club Night with ChocQuibTown

9:00 PM DJ Gray Area
9:45 PM Apple Juice Kid

The Memorial Hall stage becomes a dance club for one night this season. Come hang out with members of ChocQuibTown the night before their concert as they join in a dance party led by local DJ Apple Juice Kid.

The night kicks off with DJ Gray Area, a local emerging artist who has performed with the Red Bull Sound Select Tour, followed by Apple Juice Kid, a celebrated local DJ who has collaborated with artists such as Wale, Mos Def and Timbaland. Throughout the night, the DJs will be joined by members of ChocQuibTown, local percussionists Brevan Hampden and Beverly Botsford, and members of student hip-hop collective No 9 to 5.

This is an evening of mashups and mixes that combine live instruments, recorded tracks and drum machines into a single wave of music that will keep you dancing throughout the night!

Entry to this performance is through the Loading Dock, around the back of Memorial Hall.

ABOUT CHOCQUIBTOWN

“Exultant rap, anthemic chants and languorous Hispanic melodies’’ – The Telegraph

ChocQuibTown’s song “Somos Pacifico” has become a national anthem for an entire generation of Afro-Colombians. The hip-hop collective instills unity and pride in Choco, a province in northwest Colombia where the group was founded in 2000. In the sweltering rain-forested region, over 80 percent of the population is African by origin, and the region’s relative isolation means that its African music has been well- preserved.

The three members—Goyo, Tostao and Slow—organically combine hip-hop, funk, dance hall, electronics and Caribbean flavors with Afro-Colombian rhythms to create their unique urban style.

SOBRE CHOCQUIBTOWN

“Rap exultante, cantos conmovedores y vibrantes melodías latinoamericanas’’ – The Telegraph

La canción de ChocQuibTown “Somos Pacifico” se ha vuelto un himno nacional para una generación entera de afrocolombianos. Este colectivo de hiphop transmite el orgullo y la solidaridad de los residentes de Chocó, una provincia en el noroeste de Colombia donde se fundó el grupo en 2000. En esta región calurosa más de 80% de la población es de descendencia africana—y su relativo aislamiento ha asegurado la conservación de la música africana.

Goyo, Tostao y Slow—los tres músicos– combinan de manera orgánica el hiphop, funk, dance hall, la música electrónica y los sabores caribeños con los ritmos afrocolombianos para crear su propio estilo urbano.
