Kevin Davis and Ban Caribe “I like to Mambo”


Native New Yorker Kevin Davis began his music career studying music theory and percussion while growing up in New York’s culturally diverse neighborhoods. While living in New York his music was influenced by Tito Puente, Eddie Palmeri and Sam Cooke. His music has led him to study abroad in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and he now resides in Virginia’s capital city of Richmond. Co-founder of the World Beat Workshop in Richmond VA and a frequent guest artist at the Virginia Commission of the Arts and Young Audiences of Learning.

Kevin Davis and Ban Caribe is a blend of Afro Cuban/Latin/Caribbean music laced with soulful rhythm and blues fused together by pulsating percussion beats. “Clave Soul” is Kevin Davis & Ban Caribe’s unique style that replaces the drum set with timbales, congas, bongos, maracas, steel pan and claves with guitar cords and harmonic vocals. The group’s repertoire is spiritually inspired by traditional African rhythms and chants.
