KEVIN SPEARS Live Thursday, June 22nd at 11am

Jun 15, 2017

The kalimba is a tiny African box-like instrument you hold in your hands and pluck with your fingers. It is amazing the variety of sounds that Asheville's Kevin Spears can get out of it, especially with the loop effects he adds to his impressive mastery of it. Also amazing is the roster of artists he was played with: Futureman, Victor Wooten, Lizz Wright, India.Arie, Col. Bruce Hampton, Toubab Krewe, Arrested Development... "KalimbaMan" is part of the lineup of this year's Asheville Percussion Festival, June 26th-July 2th.
