Last week I got to see a phenomenal band from Australia perform. They are called Hiatus Kaiyote and I predict that they are going to be the next big thing… mark my words..

My phone died right before they played but a friend of mine (Amber Kiner) was kind enough to send me a few pictures that she took! Follow Amber on Instagram here- www.instagram.com/amberkiner

I believe that my phone dying was a blessing because I was able to just watch and study them perform.  It was great to soak in every moment of their performance. The whole audience was just vibing out and dancing as I just stood there with an inspired heart. I was so blown away from their musicality and technique.

The great thing was I was able to stand really close to the stage which made everything 20 million times better.

Hiatus Kaiyote is a grammy nominated band, they were nominated for Best R&B Performance but lost out to Snarky Puppy and Lalah Hathaway’s recording “Something”.

I predict that they will win several grammy’s in the future.

I  left feeling so inspired, refreshed, and reminded about what music really is.

I had the great privilege of getting to perform at MIT’s Cambridge Science Festival yesterday. The performance was called ‘Songs from Sound’ and it was collaborated with the electronic production & design and songwriting department of Berklee College of Music.  The project was about using found sounds and turning them into electronic sounds.

The Songs from Sounds project was featured by Nona Hendryx which some of you may know. She was part of a  trio  called Labelle they were the original singers of the hit song ‘Lady Marmalade’

Here is a link of their ‘Lady Marmalade’ perfomance- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4LWIP7SAjY

I was so honored to share the stage with her, she mentored me during rehearsals for the show. I learned so much from her and it was an honor to work with her!
