World beat and global percussionist, Obi Kaye performs at Harmony Presents at 8 Silk Mill Drive on Friday, January 11th at 7:30 p.m.
For over 45 years, Obi Kaye has been working with African and Middle Eastern troupes as well as with jazz bands, integrating exotic instruments from around the world while performing locally at the Milford Music Festival, Milford’s Music in the Park, Berks Jazz Fest, Yeungling Summer Jazz Festival, Musikfest, Schuylkill’s annual Unity Day Celebration and other music and Arts festivals.
Each of Obi Kaye’s five albums received international airplay via college, NPR, internet and other radio stations that play independent music. His performances feature a musical bow from Brazil called the berimbau, a water-jug shaped instrument with a hole called the Udu and an Arabic drum called the Doumbek along with other unique percussion instruments.
Obi Kaye’s music has been compared to other world music performers such as Kitaro, Deep Forest and Enigma, complimenting meditation, yoga practice and dancing.
