The Black City presents funk, soul & blues!

Since 2015 The Black City from Turin are performing the best of all things soul music. In 2019 with the Wake Up. The Funk tour, the band skilled in the genre of funk, soul, rock and blues, take their eclectic fusion on the road in Europe.

Infected by that signature funky groove that gets everyone moving, whatever the venue, the outcome is the same…the crowd dancing and having a great time. This is The Black City effect; they transfer their audience to where music lives.

In 2020 they sing for the young label Blue Mama Records releasing their second EP Sankhara
