Eclectic Fever Proudly Presents a Zap Mama New Year’s Eve Extravaganza.

San Francisco?s most multicultural NYE party returns with headliner Zap Mama, plus SILA, Non-Stop Bhangra, Sambaxe Dance, and DJs J-Boogie, Jimmy Love, Dj Jeremiah (AKA Mr. Afrobeat) and Matt Haze.

Now in its 6th year, Eclectic Fever has become a multicultural institution among New Years? Eve partygoers in San Francisco, ever since debuting in 2005. As always, the lineup offers a global feast of rhythms from all over the world.

Known to her fans as Zap Mama, Marie Daulne redefines the term ?vocalist.? She is more than just a singer?although she does that very well?but more of a sonic stylist, who alternates between storytelling and organic creative expression utilizing the tonality of the human voice. Since first bursting on the scene almost 20 years ago, the Belgian-Congolese diva has wowed audiences around the world with her unique sound, which seamlessly blends African, American, and European cultural influences and effortlessly mixes genres such as R&B, hip-hop, and jazz with indigenous and tribal sounds. Zap Mama?s seven album-deep catalog represents her mastery of what African griots recognize as the seventh sense: the ability to heal through music. In addition to her musical endeavors, Daule has worked with humanitarian aid organizations Doctors Without Borders, Amnesty International, CARE and the United Nations.

Since launching his musical career in 2005, Kenyan-born singer/songwriter and 2010 NAACP Image Award winner SILA has steadfastly become the Bay Area?s top world music artist, as well as a tireless proponent of humanitarian causes. Currently at work on his highly-anticipated third album, SuperAfrican, his music combines the social commentary of Fela Kuti, the funk of James Brown, and the universal consciousness of Bob Marley.

Non-Stop Bhangra are a SF-based Indian dance/music troupe who bring the traditional sounds of Punjabi culture into a contemporary frame. Starting with a template based around North Indian Bhangra, this collective of dancers, musicians, vocalists, drummers, and musicians fuses hip-hop, reggae, and electronic sounds into the mix, resulting in a festive, party-friendly vibe.

Sambaxé is a full force, energetic group of Brazilian-style dancers who bring the spirit of Carnival with them wherever they go. They perform alongside Bateria ¡Blocura! De San Francisco, a live band led by Alfie Macias.

DJ support at Eclectic Fever is provided by Jimmy Love (Non-Stop Bhangra), J-Boogie (Om Records/J-Boogie?s Dubtronic Science), Jeremiah (Aka Mr. Afrobeat) and Matt Haze (Slayers? Club). A portion of proceeds will benefit Doctors Without Borders? work in Somalia.

We will have an affordable full bar (no host) at the event.
