South Bronx bred flutist/percussionist, Nakayo. has been synonymous with the Atlanta soul/jazz/world music scene for over two decades and has played with the likes of Patrice Rushen, Speech(Arrested Development), India.Arie, Julie Dexter, Anthony David, Donnie, Khari Cabral & Jiva and so many more. He now breaks out on his own with a special tribute to the woman who gave him his first big break, Patrice Rushen. This is simply a sample of what's to come via his soon to be released album, Liquid Motion. Melding jazz, soul, funk, house, Afro-Cuban rhythms and African rhythms to create a fresh new sound that feels classic and new school at the same time.
