About this show

The members of Soul Mafia disregard existing musical genres and forge a brave new sound that is both timeless and right on time. Fronted by G.C., known as the "Jimi Hendrix of Hip-Hop" for his triple proficiency as a rapper, guitarist, and saxophonist, Soul Mafia reflects influences from Guns N' Roses to Jay-Z to Prince while ultimately landing in a space all their own.

The seed of rebellion has taken root; on the frontline stands Blitz The Ambassador. This multitalented lyricist/producer/film director was born and raised in Ghana. Sick of the mundane "assembly-line" nature of Hip-Hop, Blitz has gone on to craft a unique sound, taking cues from such artists as Miles Davis, Fela Kuti, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and Common - his unique sound bridges the gap between the soulful sounds of the streets and the ill-nature of politics. He now has his mind set on changing the way hip-hop approaches live instrumentation, lyrical content and the multimedia experience. His musical ideas span from the worlds of Afro-Hop, Progressive Rock, Jazz and Soul, and Latin rhythms.
