#PrismPicks: Afrobeta “Dream About You”

September 29, 2015admin

People can say whatever they want about the characters in our local music and arts scene, most of the stigmas stem from an outdated stereotype of Miamians anyway. The reason we don’t let it phase us? Because we get to work closely with some of the most inspiring and welcoming souls in this city, connected by the fibrous love for music. Smurphio and Cuci Amador, the masterminds behind the beloved Afrobeta, are some of the kindest, most sincere people you’ll ever meet, and we’re not surprised at how much their following loves them equally as much. Almost as much as they love each other. Awwwww.

You have one conversation with either of the two and you’ll walk away feeling like you not only made some new friends, but that the very fact they think you’re cool is a testament to your very own coolness rating. I’m serious. So when you tune into their dreamy, electro-pop tunes, it only makes sense that the music they create makes you feel exactly the same way. Happy, thankful, creative, and with a whole lot of bounce.

The duo has graced multiple Ultra stages, Glastonbury, Burning Man, Ibiza, musical kamikazes attacking the world with their genuinely good vibes and seriously addictive tunes. The highly-anticipated new album, Dream About You is being released in just a few weeks and to celebrate the momentous feat, they’ve invited some talented friends to join in and jam the night away for the release on October 17th at The North Beach Bandshell!

The night will feature tunes from Telekinetic Walrus, with whom they’ve embarked on a fall tour, Chantil Dukhart, Jesse Jackson, OIGO, and so many more. Plus, they’re boasting an album listening station with wireless LED headphones by Silent Revolution, limited edition posters screen-printed on site, live art by Stay Sea, grub by Purple People Eatery, Les Petit Sucres, and Miami Smokers, + Afrohead Rum cocktails and Concrete Beach Brewery selects. And most importantly? The event is free! Make sure to RSVP here.

They’re pretty darn awesome, aren’t they?
