The grooves are funky, the lyrics positive and conscious, reflecting hip-hop culture, social issues and just plain having fun. Afrofreque is known not only for their for their tightly arranged hip hop and soul compositions, but also for their high energy live performances and and tasty live improvs. The band just released their third album entitled Rawganics Vol. One.

About The Hippie House :::
The Hippie House all began in a backyard in South Austin. Our belief was that art & music, when used in conjunction, are the most powerful tools that we as humans possess today. When we started, we began hosting weekly/monthly events in the South Austin community that began a cult-like following for years to come. The Hippie House was pulled out from under us by the city of Austin and we were beyond distraught. Our community, fans, fellow brothers & sisters took after us and continued to find ways for us to keep this alive. Almost two years later we have worked with over 20 different venues/galleries/lounges in the greater Austin area, have worked with over 200 different artists from all over the country including painters, crafters, musicians, tinker-ers, thinkers, dreamers, students, educators and do-ers.
The Hippie House serves as a canvas for local artists, musicians, photographers, crafters, students and educators to collaborate in commUNITY. When we create together we create a long-lasting relationship that survives on a symbiotic relationship. Our duty as the House is to spread your art, teachings, learning through a variety of different mediums.
