Funkallisto is a recently formed sextet (Feb '04) coming straight from the vibranthe art of Rome-Trastevere.
The coming together of six musicians has culminated in a project delivering a repertoire of funk, soul-jazz and afro-beat played in the unmistakable 'funkallisto' style.The band offers a stompin' two hour show (often including djs and dancers) creating anexplosive atmosphere made to make you move with the grooveInfact over the last year and a half 2300 self produced and distributed cds have been sold.
