Roots + Soul December

Roots & Soul

What a joy it’s been presenting Roots & Soul to NYC on a monthly basis!

Since it’s conception, Center’s guests have included Rich Medina, Bobbito Garcia aka Kool Bob Love, Ian Head, Underground System and the funky sangin’ Vinia Mojica. Jimmy Lopez has kept the percussion pocket funky, alongside Center eclectic crates on those nights! It’s been a soulful music lovers paradise.

This month we welcome the genius of composer, producer, arranger and all around bad man on the winds, Sly5thAve,¬†along with his 11-piece Clubcasa Chamber Orchestra! To make the cypher complete, the legendary DJ Spinna joins Center and together they will be taking the dancefloor everywhere possible, no limits! It’s about Roots & Soul!

You’ll know it’s right when this one drops on 12/19, courtesy of the Clubcasa Chamber Orchestra -
