Kazemde George is an African American Jazz saxophonist, composer, and beat-maker, who was raised by Caribbean parents in Berkeley, California. He currently lives in Brooklyn, preforming and teaching all around New York City. During his childhood, he was exposed to a wide range of musical styles, and he has been playing piano, saxophone, and percussion from an early age. Kazemde developed a passion for jazz, as he began to recognize it as one of the most impressive and powerful cultural heritages in the U.S.

He also makes electronic music under the moniker “KG,B”. KG,B’s beats are inspired by producers such as J Dilla, Madlib, and Flying Lotus, who he sees as modern the counterparts of early jazz innovators. Since traveling to Cuba in 2012, Kazemde has expanded his focus from hip-hop and jazz to the full spectrum of musical styles which blossomed from the African Diaspora, including Afro-Cuban, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Brazilian, and African-American styles. His original music is compelling and memorable. Book your tickets now!
