Aabaraki Announces Intimate Concert at 92Y Tribeca
April 13, 2012
On Friday, May 4th, 2012, Neo-Soul band Aabaraki will be performing at the 92Y Tribeca Mainstage. The band will be performing songs off their upcoming album “The Emancipation”.
“Who are they? Just four guys from Brooklyn with the kind of talent that turns stripped down funk and soul into something great. Frontman Akie Bermiss hums and croons like Cee-Lo only with more grit, less flash. The uber-talented Aaron Steele provides the kind of class on drums that singlehandedly makes them a serious act. Brian Forbes shreds the guitar and Ari Folman-Cohen coolly funks out on the bass.”_ Ace, Music Writer

Aabaraki is a four piece band. They describe their sound as neo-soul that not only pays homage to the founders of funk, but also modernizes the genre. Guitarist Brian Forbes is a co-owner of Brooklyn’s The Gallery Recording Studio, and has toured with hip-hop rock band The Nillaz, playing on Warped Tour 2005 and at Madison Square Garden. Akie Bermiss, a self- taught jazz keyboardist who has opened for George Clinton brings with him raw and sexy vocals that fall somewhere in between D’Angelo and Stevie Wonder. Aaron Steele, one of New York’s most sought after session drummers has toured Europe opening for Jamiroquai and bassist Ari Folman-Cohen comes from a jazz heavy background and has shared the stage with Avante legend Bobby Previte and opened for Patti Smith.The band recently released an extremely polished EP, completely written, produced, and cooked up from scratch by the four accomplished musicians.
