Obi Kaye, the Black Bear Belly Dancers to perform at High Point

| 19 Dec 2013 | 10:45

    A fusion of jazz, rock, world grooves and dance will its way to Live at High Point, located at 342 Shore Drive in Montague, on Saturday, Dec. 28. Obi Kaye’s Tribal Caravan with special guests, The Black Bear Belly Dancers is a performance that combines western-style beats with the movements of gypsy caravans.

    In the spirit of the holidays, admission to the event will be free to the public and a full menu, also featuring sushi will be available.

    “We wanted to offer an eclectic range of musical entertainment for our fall season of music and we have certainly achieved that with this group,” said Jim Golden, co-owner of High Point Golf Club. “For the last few months, we have had every genre of music, with the exception of the tribal, gypsy sights and sounds you will experience during Obi Kaye’s Tribal Caravan. We are ending 2013 with a performance that you won’t want to miss and you won’t see it anywhere else.”

    World beat, global and jazz percussionist Obi Kaye employs a variety of many musical styles specializing in dance-driven and improvisational rhythms. His performances and recordings infuse the sounds of Turkey with those of Brazil combining instruments from Morocco, Pakistan and Egypt with those of Nigeria, Cuba and Puerto Rico. Kaye’s assertive, and sometimes aggressive, style locks in on a groove and takes it right to the heart of his audience. He explores every voice the drum has to offer, constantly striving to expand each possibility while blending sounds and culture.

    Kaye will be accompanied by bassist Joe Ferry (Joe Ferry & The Big Ska Band, Uzimon, The Skatalites, Dr. John and more) and keyboard/vocalist Dan Kottman. To further enhance the audience’s experience, Kaye incorporates The Black Bear Belly Dancers, a tribal belly dance troupe, whose Gypsy Caravan Tribal Style is unique to this program.
