    Nataraj, the acoustic West African roots band I am a member of is available for parties and events. The first track on my site is myself and the kora player (Keenan Webster) of the band. We also play with and amazing conga player (Zori Marinova) and can bring a bass player and more percussion if you are in need of a heavier beat for dance music. Contact me for booking.
