Tuesday 6TH November – Revision Music X Vinylheavy present Organika: Kribo Records
Organika by Revision Music returns this Deepavali to our favourite record store in Joo Chiat with our very own G-town heroes, Geylang Afro Rock Band. They are a group made up of hustlers who roamed the scandalous streets of Geylang to bring back the G in the funk.
Heavy influences of Afrobeat only instigates a sweaty soul jam to which they coined the term, “Sounds of Lecak”. You might have heard the fuzz’n’buzz of Kribo Records so there’s no reason to not be there.
