AFRO FUNKE' SOUND SYSTEM
(Afro Funke' / Eclectica)
Kiran Gandhi is an LA-based percussionist who enjoys creating mathy rhythms on drums and
various percussive instruments. She grew up in New York City and has studied percussion in
Hong Kong and Washington, DC, fusing Chinese percussion with Afro-funk music and considering
ways to apply Latin rhythms to Indian tabla. She is excited to join the Afrofunke' family once again
after playing with German DJ duo Ancient Astronauts back in April.

CLUB ZUMBA w/ WIL WILSON!
With over 20 years of dance training Wil-son has performed all over Los Angeles in numerous
LA-based dance projects with companies including Los Angeles Choreographers and Dancers, The
Los Angeles Orchestra, Nike Advertisement, BET Television Network, Charo Entertainment and the
L.A. County Fair. His skills continue to grow covering Ballroom dancing styles such as Salsa, Argentine
Tango and Swing.
At age 18, Wil combined his love of dance with his natural ability to teach and began instructing dance, while
continuing to perform. Finding that fitness and dance often went hand-in-hand, he brought in a third component
to his portfolio, and launched his fitness career in Los Angeles at 26 years old. He currently holds certifications from
national fitness authorities such as the National Academy of Sports Medicine, the Aerobics and Fitness Association
of America, the American Council on Exercise and the latest dance fitness craze Zumba. Adding to his fitness training
Wil has learned Turbo Kick, Pilates, and Special Population Fitness Training. Holistic wellness and natural health
have been Wil's passion.
