About The Event

About Ayaba Bey

Ayaba Bey is remarkably multifaceted, like the colors of the rainbow. She is a public speaker in demand. This daughter of Oya can inspire a congregation from the pulpit and motivate, stimulate and captivate any audience from any stage.  She educates and inspires all ages with the excitement, sincerity, and knowledge she brings to a presentation or performance. A visual artist, author, educator, recording artist, musician, composer and philosopher, she will inspire all who see and hear her.

For a singing style inspired by Nina Simone, Bob Marley, Bessie Smith, Aretha Franklin, Odetta, and a host of a broad spectrum of musicians, Ayaba is a must hear, must see experience. She is the Blues Mama, the Gospel Voice, the Jazz and Improvisational Queen, the Magnetic Folk Singer, the Country Girl, and Reggae Soul Singer.  She cradles the hearts and minds of her listeners with her powerful, yet gentle, voice. You come out of her concerts with an inexplicable feeling of renewal and connectedness. You hear a concert, and experience a revival. You see a great artist, and experience a supreme presence.

She is a musical storyteller who accompanies herself with guitar, other hand held percussion instruments, the African drum, and you... the audience. Every song is a one act play.
