Cimafunk took it to another level in their evening performance at the Hip Hop Stage.  The sound people had difficultiy getting the sound right taking over an hour.  The crowd got impatient and started complaining about the delay.  But as soon as the band started playing, Cimafunk had the crowd dancing and enjoying themselves.
