Sharon Jones, a legendary name of soul and funk who builds upon the legacy of James Brown, prepares to get Istanbul into the groove with The Dap-Kings.
Established in 2002, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings brings together powerful vocalist Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, formed by former members of 80s’ famous soul ensembles Soul Providers and the Mighty Imperials. Their devotion to soul music is clearly demonstrated on the band’s critically acclaimed albums including their newest release I Learned the Hard Way. They also drew attention with “This Land is Your Land”, a song they covered for the soundtrack of Academy Award and Golden Globe winning Up in the Air.
Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have relentlessly toured around the world, performing at numerous festivals. Most recently, the band has been invited by fellow soul enthusiast, Prince, to open for him at his shows. Now, with their incredible live show, they are getting ready to set the Istanbul audience in motion.
