Reggae Rhythms and Tropicália-Inspired Melodies

Rooted in reggae rhythms and tropicália-inspired melodies, Jersey City-based Kiwidynamically blends jazz flourishes and soulful grooves into a uniquely uplifting sound. Kiwi’smembers includes Alex Tea (vocals, guitar), Ramsey Norman (drums), Matt Quinones (bass), Ben Guadalupe (percussion), Dave Stolarz (keys), Barami Waspe (tenor sax), Curtis Taylor (trumpet), and Rob Edwards (trombone)

After nearly a decade of entertaining audiences around the Northeastern U.S. and Brazil, Kiwihas hit their stride with a new lineup featuring some of the New York City area’s finest musicians. The band has also been invited to share the stage with veteran reggae/ska acts including the Pietasters and John Brown’s Body.

They are also proud to be an active and vibrant presence in their home base, the Jersey City arts scene. In addition to a burgeoning American following, Kiwi also has a growing fan base in Brazil, where they have embarked on two short tours.
