The 10-Time Award-Winning Funkadesi blends Indian music (bhangra, bollywood, folk) with reggae, funk, and Afro-Caribbean grooves. The Chicago-based band's "one-family" vibe makes for an enthralling live shows and interactive workshops. President Barack Obama noted: "Funkadesi really knows how to get the crowd fired up! There's a lot of FUNK in that DESI!" For the past 20 years, Funkadesi's vision has been clear. This festive, virtuoso experience of cultural unity wows crowds through danceable grooves and brings communities together through education and dialogue.
The 6:00 PM Funkadesi Family show is scheduled to be 60 to 70 minutes long, while the 8:00 PM concert is scheduled to be 100 to 120 minutes long.
