World Renowned Bassist Bakithi Kumalo will be providing demonstrations of the U-Bass at Kala Brand Music’s booth, #1336 in Hall E. The U-Bass is Kala’s breakthrough 20″ scale bass that is strung with proprietary polyurethane strings and is notable for its deep rich bass tones. The U-Bass has captured the attention of bassists worldwide for its extremely portable size and its ability to produce the sounds of an upright as well as electric bass.
Bakithi Kumalo is known for his legendary performances on Paul Simon’s landmark Graceland album with whom he still tours and records. He has also recorded and/or toured with Herbie Hancock, Gloria Estefan, Chaka Khan, Josh Groban and Chris Botti.
Kumalo will be appearing 3 times daily (12:00, 2:00, 4:00) on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and twice (12:00 and 2:00) on Sunday.
