Biography

GLIFOS is Los Angeles meets Inland Empire music project based in Pomona, CA. GLIFOS is influenced by heavy afro-funk, Afrobeat, LatinSoul, and a blend of funkdafied Black Jazz, from the 1970’s. GLIFOS’ high energy and political flavors will take you back to an era, where not by choice but for the sake of prosecution, needed to remain underground. After afrobeat started to surface in Los Angeles, GLIFOS went with Vodou (voodoo) funk as a genre. Since Vodou is a ritualistic faith system, which involves ceremonies that consist of singing, drumming community and dancing, GLIFOS felt the project connected the same musically, spiritually, and brotherly. The result brought the audience a unique style of funk fairly new in the L.A music scene.
