Overview

Worldtown Soundsystem is a high-voltage live house music band that fuses the culture of electronic dance music with global rhythms and a heart of soul. The ensemble’s seven members have roots in three continents, and every Worldtown event is a celebration of sound from around the world. Influences from Africa, Latin America and the United States are melded into a uniquely energetic live experience that pulls a crowd to the dance floor. Worldtown’s mission is to celebrate global culture through music and art.

Sittin’ In introduces audiences to new cutting-edge artists. It defies genre, often drawing from everything from straight-ahead jazz to freestyle hip hop and all points in between. There’s an unpredictability to the night, which we enthusiastically embrace! Sometimes you’ll experience a finely tuned set and sometimes you can catch a totally improvised show by seven people who have never played together. The awesome creativity, excitement, and quality always shine through in The Kimmel Center’s informal club-like setting, featuring early warm-up sets by some of the hottest DJs around. And, it’s free!

 

Be our guest. Come by sometime and see who is Sittin’ In.
