Dan Bailey Tribe
Dan Bailey Tribe delivers roots rhythms and funky afro-beats with soulful hooks, island vibes, bluesy riffs and primal drum breaks. Dubbed “beatmaster” by the New York Times, Bailey is “an accomplished drummer, guitarist and songwriter, but his connection to the African drum is personal.”
A New York native with South African roots, Bailey studied djembe under his godfather Baba Olatunji, the original ambassador of African music to the western world. By 13, he was a professional djembe teacher, and at 19 he circled the globe to surf, write music and study with more African masters.
In the international festival circuit, Dan Bailey Tribe has performed at Envision Festival and Jungle Jam Festival in Costa Rica, Flow Festival in Hawaii, Unifier Festival in New England and BaliSpirit Festival in Indonesia. Bailey has shared the stage with Bob Marley’s Original Wailers, Culture, Maxi Priest, the English Beat and Thievery Corporation. His new ALCHEMISTIC EP features special guest performances from superstars Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Bakithi Kumalo (Paul Simon) and G. Love.
