Black Cat JAZZ@theEDGE! Presents…
The Damani Rhodes Experience featuring special guests SF poet laureate Tongo Eisen-Martin and Oakland powerhouse vocalist VADIA!
We’ve never seen anything quite like the hard-hitting blend of R&B, jazz, soul, gospel, hip-hop and funk brought to life by masterful multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer Damani Rhodes.
Known for founding the acclaimed Sacramento fusion band Mino Yanci and his time with Oakland hip-hop collective SOL Development, Damani is already making waves: his five-track 2020 debut EP R.E.A.C.H. was released in November, produced in collaboration with the Kennedy Center during Rhodes’ February 2020 residency and features Mino Yanci drummer Somadhi Johnson along with guest appearances by trumpeter Keyon Harrold and Oakland vocalist Vadia.
A recipient of 2019 YBCA 100 Award, Damani is truly a gifted multidimensional talent whose creative journey is just beginning- discover his unique sound this Wednesday at Black Cat!
