Amai Kuda and Y Josephine are singer/songwriters, percussionists, community activists and educators who believe in the power of music to heal and change the world. Their latest release, AfroSoul Volume II: MaZai, has been called ""earthy and rootsy and good for your ears"" (CBC), and is the follow-up to Amai Kuda's debut album, Sand from the Sea which was described as “one of the year's most exciting discoveries.” As a solo artist, Kuda has been featured on CBC's Big City Small World, and opened for Kellylee Evans, Kinnie Starr and Sarah Slean, while Y Josephine, with over two decades’ experience as a working musician, has performed and recorded with a host of bands in Venezuela, Aruba, Spain, the UK and now Canada. Coming together in 2013, the duo have performed at venues and events including Harbourfront Centre, Luminato, Small World Music Festival and more, in addition to giving workshops at public schools, universities, libraries and community centres throughout Ontario, the Caribbean and Europe. In 2015 they were selected as one of the ‘101 Standout Artists’ during the nationwide CBC Searchlight competition and recently collaborated with M1 of the legendary hip hop duo Dead Prez. Whether on the street, the stage or in the studio, for these two, music is about healing –the healing of the earth, our ancestors and ourselves.
