Release party/showcase in NYC, with local radio support (WKCR/Columbia)...more live dates in target cities TBD

Virtuoso guitarist, composer and extrasensory wizard On Ka'a Davis delivers a kaleidoscopic blend of jazzed-out Afrobeat, mutant interplanetary funk and vital message on his latest opus Seeds Of Djuke. A card-carrying veteran of Sun Ra's Arkestra, Donald Ayler's group, and a longtime member of Kenny Wolleson's Himalayas Collective, Davis teams up with Jojo Kuo (who played drums with Fela’s Egypt 80 and Manu Dibango), bassist Francis Mbappe and a host of voice, horn and percussion specialists from NYC and beyond to bring forth a heady brew, with sonic layers and levels peeling away to reveal a red-hot improvisational core that shimmers with a funky spirituality. In a gatefold cardboard sleeve. •Release party/showcase in NYC with local radio support (WKCR/Columbia) and more live dates in the future.
