Kaya Street Backstory
The name Kaya Street has been floating round my head as an artist name for many years. It's partially linked to my favourite record growing up as a kid 'Kaya' by Bob Marley and the Wailers. Since that age I’ve always had a fascination about different cultures and stories from across the world and after some reading I found the word Kaya is used in so many different languages. One particular translation was around the concept of a healing/resting place.
So for me, Kaya Street embodies a place to heal through the power of music.
