Hearts of Darkness is an eighteen-piece afrobeat, hip-hop, funk, soul collective formed in 2007 in Kansas City, Missouri. The sound is a hybrid beginning from the roots of '70s afrobeat and building off of the traditions of Kansas City big-band jazz as well as American funk and rock with hip-hop on top, the band's sound is as huge and lush as the grooves are deep and tight. The intention has always been to produce an incredible live show that makes good girls dance dirty and bad boys get down. Hearts of Darkness has been tearing up the local music scene, nominated for "Best Live Act" and Les Izmore for "Best Frontman" by the Pitch Weekly in 2009, and packing local venues show after show.
