10 years is a mighty long time in the music industry, but itseems Diazpora, the groove collective hailing
from Hamburg, Germany, is just getting started.
Starting inauspiciously in 2002, followed by the release of the five-track EP “Urban” in 2003, Diazpora
have since grown a steady following of fellow funk addicts overwhelmed by the band’s sheer energy.
Inspired by urban life and culture in all its guises – sex, noise, aesthetics, grittiness, serenity – the band
seamlessly fuses funkadelicious grooves, saucy bass lines, tight horns, dirty guitar, screaming Hammond
and luscious Rhodes into a ‘no-school’ funk sound that is impossible to resist.
Led by an ultra tight three-piece horn section, the band has carved a reputation as a formidable live funky jazzy
band with a string of festival and club dates around Germany and abroad.
Attention! In the night – 6 December 2013, after Diazpora’s show, we invite You again to the Festival Club, where You’ll hear Dj Himself (D), a member of the Flying Funk Circus (Vienna / Hamburg). Author of many rousing music sets inspired by the music of jazz funk, nujazz, funk, soul, afrobeat, hip-hop. One of his slogans says: “Get up, get into it, get Involved!”
Here is one of his most recent sets:
Entrance to the Festival Club is free, available through the “Szklarnia”. (Centre for Culture in Lublin, ul. Peowiaków 12)
