Soul Fusion Celebrates Memphis' Burgeoning Underground Hip-Hop and Soul Movement

Soul Fusion, the brainchild of Chiku Urban Marketing & Promotions, is a five-part monthly concert series pairing nationally recognized artists with artists from Memphis' budding hip-hop & soul music underground.

(PRWEB) September 28, 2005 -- Chiku Urban Marketing and Promotions announces its newest creation...Soul Fusion. This five-part monthly concert series is a celebration of Memphis' burgeoning underground hip hop and soul music movement. The series will feature new acts exploding onto the scene locally, nationally, and internationally performing alongside seasoned national acts. Historically, the promotional groups niche has been providing new music from emerging artists to stimulate the diverse taste buds of local music lovers.

We are geared toward the eclectic music lover, says Tonya Dyson-Jerry, founder of Chiku Urban. I love a variety of musical genres being that I am an artist myself and thats what Chiku Urban promotes. We are not interested in following the mainstream; we are more interested in redirecting the mainstream into a more exciting direction. The series will kick off Saturday, October 1 with N'Dambi (www.ndambionline.com) along with local favorites Carmen, Men-Nefer, and Will Graves - more affectionately known as "The Fam".

An accomplished artist who has finally achieved her opportunity to shine, N'Dambi joins her wagon to a current slew of artists, such as Erykah Badu, Cree Summer, Angie Stone, Kelis, Lauryn Hill and Cherokee, who are returning integrity and soulfulness to music that has been absent for far too long. For navigating herself through a corrosive industry and finding her own voice, N'Dambi is truly one deep diva.

The anchor show to the series is October 1, 2005 at the newly renovated Complex at 704 Madison Ave. The doors open at 8pm with the show starting promptly at 9pm. Advance tickets to the series are $20 and $25 at the door. Tickets are sold in the following locations: Spin Street (Poplar Plaza), New World Accessories (Midtown), Nappi by Nature (Whitehaven), Java Juice and Jazz (South Memphis), The Complex (Downtown) & online at www.chikuurban.com. A limited number of VIP tickets are available by contacting (901)276-4335.
