The music of Vulfpeck is happy by nature. Songs like “Back Pocket” and “Funky Duck” inevitably leave smiles across faces when they grace the musical palette, so it’s no wonder that people like to play their infectious songs and share them with the world. As did THUNK, Northwestern University’s premiere co-ed a cappella group, with their rendition of “Back Pocket”.
The group will be bringing this arrangement to Cape Town next month for their traditional trip to South Africa, where they conduct music workshops at local schools, community centers, and rehabilitation facilities while also taking the opportunity to perform at venues around the city. In addition to holding workshops and playing gigs, THUNK members use their remaining time to explore the wonders of Cape Town, visiting landmarks such as Robbin Island, Table Mountain and Cape Point. At its core, the Cape Town Project serves to enrich the lives of those in the communities they visit as well as the lives of their members. “We do that the best way we know how – through music,” they explain. Support the 2016 Cape Town Project here, and enjoy THUNK’s performance of “Back Pocket”, as arranged by Ogi Ifediora and Ryder Chasin.
