It was a really bright atmosphere last night at Club Kalakutah as one of Indiana’s most prominent Disc Jockeys, Dj Drey , celebrated his birthday last night . The exclusive event was attended by his closest friends , family and associates . The night featured high life performances by Akin Olowo and comedy by Mc ChrisJoe Jagaban . Another outstanding Dj from Indianapolis , DJ Xclone was on the wheels of steel dishing out a compilation of songs befitting of a colleague’s birthday party.
Club Kalakutah, named after the Nigerian Afro-beat Legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti, is the arguably the biggest African club in Indianapolis, and one of the very few clubs that play Afro-beat and high-life music in the city . It houses the most African parties, especially on the weekends. Flex Saturday, is already a favorite among IUPUI and Ivy Tech students . It serves as a great way to network; relieve stress and rejuvenate while listening to African music from the likes of DJ DellyJay , DJXclone and the birthday boy himself , DJ Drey . Although Saturdays are always packed and Sunday are reserved for the more traditional Tungba or Highlife music, you can always find an activity going on at club kalakutah even on the week days .
This is one place i recommend you visit if you are spending a night in Indianapolis because there is always something entertaining going on at the venue . It also houses the very famous Kalakutah restaurant , one of the few places you will find original African cuisine on the menu.
