ABOUT US

Artelia Green & the Bandanas braids together Frisco swagger, Arkansas roots and Yoruba remembrances to curate critical thought and action. Our 10-piece band merges reverberating funk & gospel-vamping with brass and djembe as a way to invite listeners to embrace the truth of Black suffering and transcendence—to craft more accountable and responsive relationships with our necessary grief en route to a different time, space, and place.
