Event Description

FAREED HAQUE & THE FLAT EARTH ENSEMBLE + ORCHESTRA GOLD. FAREED HAQUE & THE FLAT EARTH ENSEMBLE + ORCHESTRA GOLD. We ve got the World Beat s FUNKIEST two bands together on one Night at Boom Boom Room! When: Thursday, May 16th 2019 9:00 PM til 2:00 AM Door Time: 8:00 PM Show Type: Two smokin hot Live Bands, Funk, Worldbeat Restrictions: 21 & over ** FAREED HAQUE ** & Flat Earth Ensemble + ** ORCHESTRA GOLD ** FAREED HAQUE Flat Earth Ensemble Funky ~ Exotic ~ Fareed Haque Fareed Haque s Flat Earth Ensemble is a group that realizes the musical vision Haque has had for decades. During his years at Blue Note records, touring nationally with jam greats Garaj Mahal, or in his many projects with Sting, Paquito Rivera, Joe Zawinul or Zakir Hussein, Haque has long sought to record the new sounds that were as much a part of him as his DNA. The musical mission of Flat Earth Ensemble is to incorporate the charismatic dance and folk music of his Punjabi roots in India and Pakistan with the traditions of American jazz and funk. Utilizing the finest players from opposite sides of the world, Flat Earth Ensemble molds the sounds of different worlds into a dynamic, contemporary sound. The result is music that reverberates from the tubes of guitar amplifiers to the streets of Mumbai. ORCHESTRA GOLD Orchestra Gold is driven by a mission to share Mali s ancient musical treasures with the West. Musically, they are influenced by the 1960 s era Big-Band sound, the creative Golden Era which saw the first wave of reinterpretation of old folkloric music. Socially, they are driven a vision for a more equitable society, and a world where the music that hits the hardest can reach those who need it the most. Through a variety of additional activities such as dance workshops and classes for youth, Orchestra Gold strives to expose old style art forms of this era not just to the broad audience at large but specifically to segments of the population (poor, under-resourced) that could most benefit from it. The story of Orchestra Gold spans time and space, beginning as the seed of collaboration between Malian dancer/singer Mariam Diakit and Californian multi-instrumentalist Erich Huffaker. They first met in 2006 at a wedding, through djembe master Match Kassim Traore. Their partnership developed as they began the boundary-defying work of identifying and reinterpreting ancient folkloric music that is seldom heard in its authentic entirety even today among younger Malian musicians. The initial partnership of Mariam and Erich is supplanted by a crew deeply representative of the Bay Area s afrocentric music scene. Sonically, Orchestra Gold is influenced by the Golden era of Malian music, utilizing western instrumentation (guitar, bass, drums) to reinterpret old school authentic folkloric music. Drawing from other disparate elements of the 60 s and 70 s such as afrofunk, groove-oriented classic rock and psychedelia, the old style sound they promote prioritizes gritty, analog production, and a stripped-down approach to songwriting. The handle, Orchestra Gold , has a dual meaning. On one hand, it pays homage to the celebrated style of big band music developed during Mali s post-independence golden era 1960 s-1970 s. On a deeper level, the name reflects the fact that although Sub-Saharan West Africa (especially Mali) is well-endowed with the prized element gold, its true source of value is not its material resources, but its music.
