Consuela Mckenzie and Shahla Karkouti, UNIFUNK founders, have jointly spent almost 30 years in music and the arts industries in the UK, Los Angeles (USA), Europe, The Middle-east and South America. They are both currently immersed in the UK music scene and produce regular nights presenting a wide range of dance and live music. With artistic backgrounds, they have always aimed to put artists at the forefront.
“Being a musician myself and as a regular events producer, I’m constantly on the scene putting on a wide array of nights from world music live events to warehouse parties with my team of like minded promoters. Being back in London Consuela and I were both inspired in bringing ethical music events to life.”
They work in partnership with national and international renowned talent, private individuals, organisations and worldwide charities and share a commitment with Walk Talkin Entertainment their US partner to making music, the arts and select information more accessible worldwide.
Inspired by Thanksgivends an annual giving event in Los Angeles which international artists and some of the best DJs, producers, promoters and industry volunteers come together to benefit charities from the arts.
". It was something that every year LA artists looked forward to. This charitable and giving attitude gave the event an atmosphere like no other event I had experienced. Back in the UK I found in Shahla someone with similar experiences and who shared the same drive and spirit towards linking creative passions with charitable causes. Unifunk was a very organic process for us."
Chrome and Black in London’s trendy Shorditch and new shop in Brighton will be donating their artistic skill to the event adding to the alternative ambiance. Also supporting the event are Ned’s Noodles and Princesse d’Isenbourg et Cie.
The night will be filled with the essence of giving, amazing music, merging London’s alternative scene and people into a contemporary fusion. We look forward to having you there to join in the experience and to help us celebrate and continue to support Cancer Research UKs ground breaking efforts.
