SALIF KEITA, BHAKTI FEST, JOSHUA TREE (CA), SEPT 4TH-7TH 2014


image

Salif Keita and his ensemble composed of two female singers, modern solo and traditional guitarists, a Kora player and a Djembe player/percussionist performed fashionably late. The crowd was very delighted with each song as the organic sounds of the ensemble coupled with the great renowned voice of Salif Keita were very soothing. The crowd was also informed of the humanitarian work and organization that Salif Keita is involved in regarding his albino skin condition in order to gather funds to help albinos worldwide especially in Mali where they face ostracism and discrimination.

BHAKTI FEST, JOSHUA TREE (CA), SEPT 4TH-7TH 2014


image

The Bhakti Fest was well-organized and secure without numerous restrictions. As the name of the festival suggests, Indian lifestyle and religions (Hinduism) were the primary focus of the festival with acts such as Krishna Das, Deval Premal, MC Yogi, and Prema Hara though there were invitees such as Malian singer Salif Keita (Mali), American reggae artist Matiyashu and other Sufi Muslim traditional bands. World music and traditional instruments were definitely emphasized with each act. There were also various Yoga workshops all-day long at different stages to the delight of the attendees. The desert climate was mild (78-89 degrees F) and there was ample space for campers. The food selection was excellent especially for health-conscious vegetarian and raw vegan eaters with food vendors who accommodated everyone including traditional American food eaters. There were also numerous art and clothing vendors from across the country who also carried various imported items. The festival was a definite success and went all day and night long with eclectic DJs such as DJ Dredz entertaining dance crowds at night at the main stage.

GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC, LONG BEACH FUNK FEST, LONG BEACH (CA), SEPTEMBER 1ST 2014.


image

Great way to celebrate Labor Day at the Long Beach Funk Fest’s new location (Queen Mary’s Events Park) by the ocean with the scenic view of the City’s shore. George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic definitely shocked the crowd with their formal wear (Suits) instead of the psychedelic eccentric look which involves diaper wearing and roller-skating on stage, not to mention George Clinton was wearing a hat instead of his trademark rainbow color wig. The show and performance were excellent nonetheless. The Band is energetic and gives the audience the impression that they’re family. They performed most of their classics including “Let me ride” and “Atomic Dog” which had a huge influence on 90s West Coast hip hop, and particularly Dr. Dre who sampled their music tremendously with his top-selling album “The Chronic”. The event was a bit tightly guarded with police and many restrictions with the No food and chairs policies amongst others. Also there weren’t too many healthy food selections.
