AphrodesiA in Bend

AphrodesiA is a "San Francisco-based 11-piece ensemble [that] has won audiences over with an eclectic, unique sound- a blend of rich, female lead vocals and slamming horn-laden polyrhythmic funk that Global Rhythm Magazine called a Pan-African mash-up."

AphrodesiA will be performing at the 541 Lounge this Friday, November 30 at 9pm. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Check out their music on the AphrodesiA web site and the AphrodesiA MySpace page.

AphrodesiA was originally slated to perform at The Summit Saloon and Stage, but the opening of The Summit has been postponed.
