“the area¹s tastiest musical ragout of New Orleans parish soul, blues, reggae and dense funk” -The Philadelphia Inquirer
“not just irresistible but transcendent” -The City Paper
“On South St. Philly Gumbo ruled the funk scene when The Roots were mere seedlings” -Vintage Guitar Magazine
Philly Gumbo has been the foremost exponent of New Orleans music in the Philadelphia area for over three decades and perhaps the only band to effectively mix New Orleans R&B, soul, funk, blues, reggae and African music. Led by the soulful vocals of India Rex, the band has been thrilling audiences at major venues and festivals, twice receiving “Best of Philadelphia” recognition from Philadelphia Magazine, with music that is dance-inducing as well as listener-friendly.
