Golden Dawn Arkestra's Topaz McGarrigle

My KUTX // May 9, 2020

Every Friday night during this self-isolation, Golden Dawn Arkestra’s Topaz McGarrigle has been holding (virtual) court at the Sahara Lounge, spinning records and raising money for the east side space. As the leader of the Arkestra, he’s an expert in turning any space into a psychedelic dance party, and this week on My KUTX, we’re reairing Topaz’s 2019 KUTX guest DJ set. Hear a full hour of Nigerian disco, Ghanaian gospel, Japanese psych-rock, and more to get you dancing in your casa. Listen to My KUTX on Saturday, May 9 at 6 p.m. or any time in the player above.
