One Note One Spirit — Play! Sing! Dance! Improv! Joy!
February 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST$20
One Note One Spirit is a sound community where you can be, feel, and express freely. We will have fun by playing percussive insturuments, using our voices and moving our bodies, which often helps with letting our feelings and emotions out. You might enjoy the spontaneous harmony, dissonance and surprising moments!
You don’t need any musical experience. We have some percussive instruments for you to use, but please feel free to bring your own instruments.
Please join us! Let’s have fun!
This month Kevin Nathaniel will join us! Kevin specializes in voice, mbira, kalimba, shekere, and a variety of percussion. He approaches music as an experience to be shared by all, a healing force that can bring people together as one. In this regard, he is a visionary musician. His approach is creative with whatever musical instrument or path he embarks. At times vocal, or instrumental with mbira melodies and enchanting dance rhythms, and at times fiery and percussive, and all phases in between. He was drawn into music by the magical sound of the mbira, working with the legendary Zimbabwean mbira master Ephat Mujuru for years. He has continued the mbira/kalimba legacy and works to expand it creatively. He often tours, performing all over the planet as well as producing a popular music series in NYC (see Afro Roots Tuesdays). He is founding member of several bands including Spirit Ensemble, Heritage OP, Harmony Mbira, Kaleidhaphonic, Afrika Meets India, and more. He has worked with a wide variety of artists including Alice Walker, Oprah Winfrey, Jonathan Demme, Thomas Mapfumo, Miriam Makeba, Bobby McFerrin, Niles Rodgers, Madonna, Philip Glass, Nana Vasconcelos, and on and on. You can find his music on Spotify, You Tube, iTunes, Cdbaby, and many other outlets.
