Chop & Quench

Chop and Quench, "The Fela! Band", is comprised of members of the cast and band of FELA! the musical. Individually, the musicians are some of the finest in New York, having performed with The Roots, India Arie, Elvis Costello, and many others. Lead singer Sahr Ngaujah was nominated for a TONY Award for his performance in the Broadway show and has been featured on film and television. As a unit, the band has accompanied performers such as Beyonce, Femi Kuti and Angelique Kidjo. Known for their straightforward performances of classic Fela Kuti compositions, they have branched out, bringing their own original music to the stage. After performing around the world, they recently performed at Sundance Film Festival in conjuction with the premir of Alex Gibney's film, "Finding Fela". The band is preparing to go into the studio for their first recording since Fela!

This promises to be a hot night in Harlem!
