About the Artists:
KATA is a four member Group the name arrives from a common thread which bonds the group in culture, music and dance from Africa to the Caribbean, which result in a roots rocks sound in reggae and highlife music. The word Kata has many definitions, the one they portray is “a padding place on top of the head to cushion heavy loads”. Their goal is to ease and cushion the burden of the mind and heavy load of the system with music that keeps you dancing.
Africa Unplugged is a dynamic ensemble of accomplished musicians that features traditional instruments of West Africa. Using these instruments they push the boundaries of music while based in a tradition centuries old but also incorporating musical influences and experiences from places around the world. This exciting band has enthralled audiences across the US with its smooth melodies and virtuosic playing.
