Pink Hawks Release Show Coming Up!

Denver’s hottest afrobeat act is back! On Friday October 2nd at Ophelia's in Denver we're releasing "Taste Your Medicine b/w KuKu" on 12" random color vinyl (with download) by Pink Hawks, the 10-piece afrobeat/global dance orchestra.  Taste Your Medicine is a sexy, upbeat, Afrodisco track.  The music video for Taste Your Medicine will also be premiered at this event.  Kuku is inspired by a traditional Guinean song that celebrates food and festival.  Pink Hawks places this music piece within the context of international food politics and food justice, with horn lines transcribed from lead djembe phrases, striking rap vocals by Molina Speaks, and a percussion feature by master drummer Fara Tolno.  Listen for the message or let your body move; neither choice will disappoint.  Pink Hawks has been a staple in Denver’s world music, cultural arts, and dance scenes since before the release of their debut album Shima (May 2011).  Led by eccentric frontman Yuzo Nieto, the band has changed, grown, changed again, and grown some more.  Known for their eclectic presence, Pink Hawks fans can expect new talent on stage, more poetry and lyricism, and an even broader range of sounds and styles.  Newcomers can expect to be turned on to one of Denver’s premier performance bands.  Preview a track on our sampler now!  How about them apples?!
