Hannabiell & Midnight Blue
This high energy Afro-Psychedelic Funk & Jazz ensemble is nothing less than exhilarating. It fuses together Afro-Caribbean & Latin percussion, Jazz, Afro-beat, Funk, and Reggae to create their unique sound. The music created from this fusion is an organic blend of powerful and upbeat drums, brass, vocal chants, and mbira compositions which not only produces an invigorating party atmosphere, it also summons audience participation.
