About Underground System.
Conceived in Brooklyn, this unstoppable female-fronted corps of neo-afrobeat-deconstructionists has cultivated an astonishing, infectious sound. Hinged on a tight, seamlessly executed stage show, this group astonishes wherever they go, compelling crowds to dance with unbridled vim. To provide a sliver of a glimpse of insight into their unfathomably varied roots, their original dance floor track “Bella Ciao” received worldwide fanfare, as several DJs and producers cut and remixed it. The song is a “retro-futuristic” reimagining of an anti-fascist WWII ballad from Italy, sung by the African American-Italian lead singer (Domenica Fossati) who was born in Miami and raised in Venezuela. Citing influences from the South Bronx girl group ESG to the Brit-new wave cult crew XTC, this subterranean organization of deliciously scrambled afrobeat re-inventors continues to soar across broadening musical horizons.
