On September 24, Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance presents a night full of eclectic soulful jams from friends of the grassroots festival family. As a part of our 'Shakori Presents' series, the festival highlights artists from across North Carolina that showcase the same diverse artistic output that our festival acts display. Whether they be Shakori Hills alumni, or up-and-coming acts from the region, our goal is to shine a light upon the immensely talented artists within the North Carolina community. Based out of Raleigh-Durham, NC, Carolina Music Award Nominee - N'KOGNiiTO has spent the last two and half years crafting their own original sound and honing their skill set. With heavy influences from a variety of genres, the group does not like generic. Their music blurs the lines between R&B, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Blues and more. It's only a matter of time before N'KOGNiiTO becomes a well-recognized name.
