The Umoja Orchestra & Morningbell Reunion Show at The Wooly


Umoja Orchestra is a Gainesville, FL-based band whose music incorporates elements from afrobeatjazzfunkafro-cuban as well as traditional African, Caribbean and South American styles like salsa and merengue. The band's instrumentation is modeled closely to bands such as Fela Kuti's Africa 70 and the Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra.


Umoja Orchestra was, and still is, a strong presence in the Gainesville music scene and is ever-growing. It is especially known for its energetic, crowd-pleasing, and dance-oriented live performances, usually selling out local venues and putting on spectacular shows. They have gone on three national tours, mostly through the East Coast, but as far as Texas. The name "Umoja" comes from the Swahili word for "unity".


 


Morningbell is Gainesville Florida's own melodic, multi-layered, psychedelic rock quartet. The band has rooted themselves as a well established tradition in the Florida Music Scene and beyond, touring the Eastern United States. Morningbell has been critically acclaimed and featured in Bonnaroo, MTV's The Real World Sydney, Blender Magazine, Pitchforkmedia.com, The Washington Post, and Americana UK. The bands music stands up best behind their captivating live performances. Armed with an arsenal of low budge lighting effects, Morningbell not only causes the stage to erupt with sound, but with their trademarked 100 dollar light show as well.
