Curated and hosted by Nooky Jones, Soul of the Twin Cities delivers an exclusive performance featuring artists who embody the lineage and legacy of Twin Cities funk, R&B, and soul, as well as the musicians who are currently crafting the future of the Minneapolis sound.


Joining Nooky Jones:

André Cymone

André Cymone’s musical life began decades ago. He found a kindred spirit in his schoolmate Prince, and the two began playing in bands together in their teens, laying the groundwork for the revolutionary Minneapolis sound that would alter the face of popular music in the ’80s.





Until recently, the Twin Cities collective now known as Astralblak fused together funk, soul, and hip-hop in fresh ways—under a different name. Initially performing as Zuluzuluu, inspired by the Zulu tribe of South Africa, they won City Pages’ Picked to Click, an annual poll of best new Twin Cities musical acts, in 2016.




Ashley DuBose

Ashley DuBose is probably most widely known for her hit single, “Intoxicated,”, and for her participation in Season 5 of NBC’s The Voice. In 2014, Ashley was chosen “Best Vocalist (Female)” by one of the most respected news and entertainment sources in her hometown, City Pages, for their annual Best of the Twin Cities magazine issue.
