The Blassics

The Blassics play original funk with afrobeat elements. The band coming from Hämeenlinna in Finland perform probably the grooviest Ethiopian jazz-inspired music I've ever heard in my life. At this occasion, the seven-piece live band was part of a Funky Amigo event at the urban food district Teurastamo in Helsinki.
