Onye and The Messengers are a fabulous
Afro World Beat Band!
Onye and The Messengers is a Northern California based Afro World Beat Band inspired by renowned Nigerian master percussionist and performer Onye Onyemaechi. The band is a primal Afro Beat Band that finds its roots in the spirit of ancient Africa, re-creating the tribal world village celebration of body and soul. The band music is a combination of electrifying influences of African rhythms, funky blues and jazz, reggae, rock and world music.
The rhythm of the music is heavenly polyrhythmic, and the vocals can range from traditional call-and-response, chanting styles and wailing melody lines associated with funk and soul music. The Messengers can perform nationally and internationally for any entertainment events including festivals, corporate functions, universities, concerts and wineries.
Onye and the Messengers captivate crowds and move people's souls with their Afro tribal beats and earth bound rhythms.
