Roman Norfleet & Be Present Art Group

Roman Norfleet (1988 n. American born) is an interdisciplinary cultural producer, healer and mystic that uses sculpture, music composition, performance and social organizing as instruments in exploring his committed interest in spiritual and social development. 

Originally hailing from Lockport, Illinois, Roman’s formative years were spent immersed in the vernacular traditions of the Baptist Church where his parents Mose Ella and Rev. Robert Norfleet attended and provided Roman the foundation to seek spiritual enlightenment on his own. His development journey led him to Los Angeles where he lived in an Gaudiya Vaishnava Ashram and studied Hindu/ Vedic Philosophies of Swamini Turiyasangitanada (Alice Coltrane) with her students. These years of deep immersion into his spiritual practices greatly influenced the way Norfleet approaches music and provided expansive insight into the sacred power of sound.

Day Soul Exquisite  

Day Soul Exquisite is a 6-piece band from Seattle, WA. Fronted by singer Francesca Eluhu, the QTBIPOC-led band is a mix of neo-soul, psychedelic r&b, and jazz. 

Drawing inspiration from the London Jazz scene and Afro-caribbean influences, Day Soul Exquisite’s music brings raucous energy, sweet queer love songs, and defiant responses to oppression. The ensemble’s rhythm section features two percussionists creating intricate rhythms to support the band’s powerful presence.

Formed during the pandemic, Day Soul Exquisite quickly reached the stages of Timber Fest, Capitol Hill Block Party, Belltown Bloom, The Tractor Tavern, Barboza, So Dreamy Festival and more. The unique band is completed by multi-instrumentalists Zora Seboulisa (bass), Josh Pehrson (drums), Lillian Minke Tahar (keys), Thomas Arndt (percussion) and Xiomara Mills (alto sax). 

Their debut EP "Sanguine & Cardamom" came out in January on La fem Records
