The Afrofunk Experience is an ambrosial mix of musical interpretations influenced by the African diaspora. Along with former member, Sila Mutungi, they formed the award-winning group Sila and the Afrofunk Experience until 2010—earning the title “The Bay Area’s Dance Kings,” the NAACP Image Awards “Outstanding World Music Album,” and the SF Weekly Music Awards “Best International Act.”
Guitarist and singer David James brings a sinewy style, while lead guitarist Ken House weaves in a heavyFunk-Metal influence. Paul Olipant’s precise drumming and Wendell Rand’s dance grooves keep the band tight,while saxophonist David Boyce and trombonist Alan Williams wail—their horns hinting at genres like Jazz, Classic Reggae, Afrobeat, and R&B—all complimenting Sandy House’s powerful, sultry voice.
