All this week, the Song of the Day spotlights artists playing the Sound Factory Stage Powered By KUTX at the X Games.

With the sun setting at Pan Am Park during MapJam 2015, Golden Dawn Arkestra made an entrance that could only be described as “grand.” The crowd parted in the middle as the dozen or so band members took the stage in a parade. It’s only fitting that the Arkestra’s music sounds like some sort of cosmic parade, boogieing to it’s own weird blend of funk, Afrobeat, and jazz. Here’s hoping the Arkestra all ride in on skateboards at the X Games. Download a Studio 1A version of “Osaka” below.

Catch Golden Dawn Arkestra at the X Games on Friday, June 5 at 2:30 p.m.
