Unofficial Oktoberfest party #2: $5 Dirndl Discount (wear your Oktoberfest gear and entrance is only $5!)

Two out-of-this-world bands united together through the bond of worldly music: Afrofunk Experience and Saritah (from Australia!).

Chunky rhythms mixed with tasty funk-to-metal guitar grooves and blazing horns is the deep soul sound of the Afrofunk Experience: Every night the band delivers home grown ORIGINAL BAY AREA FUNK, AFROBEAT, REGGAE, AND MORE

South Korean born, raised in Perth and based in Melbourne, SARITAH (sa-REE-ta) has a positive vision for the future which shines through every word she sings and every note she plays.

Inspiring, uplifting and playfully powerful, Saritah’s live shows are colourful celebrations of life. A dynamic performer, she delivers a potent combination of feminine spirit, conscious lyrics and heartful melodies whilst embodying a unique union of roots, reggae, soul, acoustic and dancehall inspired sounds.

A festival favourite, Saritah has toured consistently within Australia and abroad since the release of her debut album Gratitude (2004). Her songs are reflections, affirmations, invocations, revelations.

The latest album DIG DEEP, released in November 2012, reveals Saritah at the next level of her career. Recorded in the hills of Montecito, California, and partly produced by Mario Caldato Jr. (Jack Johnson, The Beastie Boys, John Butler Trio), DIG DEEP debuted at #35 in the iTunes USA Reggae Charts. It is a vibrant, rich album that unites roots reggae, dancehall, pop and nu-soul flavours on a courageous journey through universal conditions of joy, loss, inspiration and faith. The songs deal with personal evolution as the starting point for global revolution.
