This concert will be a reflection of the multitude of musical influences, whose songs are created with the intention of healing and celebration! Inspired by the power of music to express strong feelings and unite communities, Bay Area native Kelly Takunda Orphan Martinez has been singing, dancing, playing percussion, and writing songs for a few decades now, often collaborating with amazing artists from Zimbabwe. 



Kelly Takunda Orphan: Lead vocals & various instruments

Ayla Davila: Bass

Bob Crawford: Keys

Colin Douglas: Drums

Erick Barberia: Percussion

Amber Hines: Vocals and Percussion 

In 1994, after recording and touring with Babatunde Olatunji and African Rain, Kelly went to Zimbabwe to study music and dance, and wound up performing for Nelson Mandela. Since then, she has toured nationally and internationally with Keith Terry and Crosspulse, founded the women’s vocal and percussion ensemble Mutama, performed with the Peruvian group Nosotras, and led the KTO Project. Their music is personal and political, soulful and spiritual – and it makes you want to dance!
