Under the new direction of Nick Filippides we will be performing at the 2018 Branford Festival bringing you the music from our spring 2018 concert, Rooted: American Music African Roots. We hope you enjoy our arrangements of Toto’s Africa, Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk and Stevie Wonder’s Superstition to name just a few!
