About thom namaya


Namaya is the jazz poet, with his band, the jazz beat blues poetry ensemble, as a solo artist, sharing the stage with such jazz luminaries like Sheila Jordan, or in performances with jazz cats around the world. "Jazz poems are the sweet fusion of sound, images, and colors dancing with the music. My favorite performances have been where the music and the story is created on stage, a bit of Sketch of Spain from Miles, or a dash of the Bird's rift, a vivacious woman who saunters into the room, an e flat minor rifts into the memory of moonlight on the Anapurna mountains, or a theme suggested from an audience."
