Giveaway: Funkadesi, Oct. 3 at Walton Arts Center


Walton Arts Center will kick off the 10 x 10 Art Series season with a performance by Chicago-based multicultural band Funkadesi next month.

The band, known for its unique blend of musical styles, combining Indian music — bhangra, Bollywood, Indian folk — with reggae, funk, and Afro-Caribbean grooves, will perform at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3.

As will all 10 x 10 shows, tickets start at only $10.

You won’t even have to worry about that, though, if you’re the winner of the following ticket giveaway. Good luck.

How to enter

Funkadesi is known for combining an incredibly wide range of cultural musical influences into a cohesive, funky musical identity all its own.

Leave a comment telling us a mashup of two musical styles that you’ve never heard combined that you think might sound good together, and you’re entered. Is it hair metal-classical? Opera-rap? Country-funk? Make something up, and you’re entered.
