Onye and The Messengers
Afro World-Beat Band! 

A primal Afro World-Beat Band with roots in the spirit of ancient Africa, Onye and the Messengers creates a tribal world village celebration of body and soul. The band rocks African rhythms, funky blues, jazz, reggae, latin, rock and world music. 

The grooves are polyrhythmic and the vocals range from traditional call-and-response, chanting styles and wailing melody lin
es associated with funk and soul music.

Together We Celebrate Life!

Onye and the Messengers captivate crowds and move people's souls with their Afro tribal beats and earth bound rhythms.
Dawn Bruchez (DJ Lilly), World Vibrations, www.KSJD.org 90.5fm

Mind expanding! Onye and The Messengers embody music with truth and passion, with rhythms that heal and transform, making every performance a soulful and celebratory experience.
Michael Rothenberg, 100 Thousand Poets for Change
