Bakithi Kumalo

Bakithi Kumalo met Paul Simon in 1985.  He was runner for a mechanic and played bass whenever he could.  Paul Simon evidently heard him play while he was in Africa and Bakithi has been his bass player and collaborator since the Graceland album.

We are fortunate to have been introduced to Bakithi by our friend and renowned musician Kerry Kearney and it is my very great pleasure to be able to present this talented and world music star to Thai Rock for a unique jazz performance.
