Vallejo-based recording and performing artist has completed the recording and mixing of the tracks for their new album Casbah, and is getting ready to announce a release date. The band is composed of legendary percussionist and drummer — and former Santana member Mingo Lewis; and his partner in life and music, keyboardist and singer Karissa Soundsapien. The new Casbah album also features world renowned guest musicians, Al Di Meola, Lina Bahn and John Cotto.
A master musician and high energy performer, Mingo is a force of nature. Above all he is grounded to the beat of the Planet and roots and changing rhythms of Mother Earth and the world music scene. He has performed on over 300 albums and CDs and is considered one of the music industry’s leading studio drummers and percussionists.
Over the last several years, working with his performing and recording collaborator Karissa and complementing their live-performance sound with amazing video and animation visuals, their music is now even more alive and filled with the intensity, passion and creative fire.
In addition and in anticipation of an incredibly busy 2017, the band has formed MKMusic, their own record label, which will handle the release of CASBAH, the new ROOM OF VOICES project, and other upcoming solo and group collaborations.
Also Mingo and Karissa have been invited to play at upcoming events and festivals in Egypt, New Zealand, among other locations.
