The Black City from Turin, a skillful band in the genre of funk, soul, rock and blues: creating an eclectic fusion of the funky music they love for your enjoyment.
The band takes you back to funk music’s roots; the signature groove that gets you moving, that heavy emphasis on the first beat of every measure, the melodic bass lines, the rich drum patterns and guitar riffs, all are there in every track. Though they also give you a little extra; listen for the Blues, Rock and even Latin influences.
The Black City have played with Lola Gulley, the legendary Queen of the Blues from Atlanta, Georgia (USA) and Evelyn Rubio, sax player and singer from Texas (USA).
Before forming The Black City, the four musicians have enjoyed individual success, performing nationally and internationally as part of leading bands: Lou Bega, Tribà, Calipson, Abnoba and Ossi Duri.
Thursday nights they animate the BlueFunk jam sessions at the Birraceca Pub82 in Rivoli, where the best musicians from around Turin meet to perform and jam; often joined by international artists.
Martin Craig (Guitar & Voice), Simone Bellavia (Bass Guitar & Voice) and "Caldero" (Drums & Voice)
