The Afrolicious sound is eclectic, electric, and funky. It relentlessly grabs hold of the audience and pulls them onto the dance floor. Mixing African, Latin, and percussive rhythms with electronic breaks, club beat, sand heavy bass drops, an Afrolicious show is a non-stop dancing frenzy. Whether touring as DJs, a sound system with live percussion or as a full 6-8 piece band, Afrolicious has established a legendary reputation across the U.S. from their home in San Francisco, CA. With recordings on ESL Music produced by Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza, their sound is known among industry tastemakers and fans around the globe.
Afrolicious has performed at storied venues and festivals such as Red Rocks, High Sierra Music Festival, Bottle Rock Napa, The Fillmore San Francisco, Stern Grove Music Festival, Electric Forest Festival, Guitarfish Music Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival, Fillmore Jazz Festival, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, SXSW, Wakarura, Burning Man, Redwood Mountain Faire, Firefly Gathering, Mountain Sol Music Festival, Hangtown Music Festival, and For the Funk of It, among many, many others.
