Kaya Street at the Jam Jar
"Kaya" meaning "pure, home, resting place, the healer".
Kaya Street is the creation of singer, songwriter and Bristol based producer Kaya.
Starting off as a studio based collaborative project featuring musicians from across the globe (South Africa/Spain/UK) Kaya Street is focussing 2020 on bringing its music out the studio and into the live setting with shows encompassing full live bands, original sing-jay sets and low fi acoustic sets.
Dark, uplifting and atmospheric, the Kaya Street sound is immersed in a genre hopping blend of neo-soul, dub reggae, trip hop, psychedelia, afro-indie, folk and electronica and deals with themes of lust, grief, ancestry, madness and political resistance in a time of rising nationalism.
The music has featured on BBC Introducing and Sky TV and received outstanding reviews from the likes of Miniature Music Press, Bristol 24/7 and Bearded Magazine.
