Join New Orleans' own kei slaughter (and maybe even a few special guests) for a night of acoustic soul freedom sounds, musical storytelling, and community healing!
kei slaughter [they/them] is a Soul-Folk Sonic Storyteller conjuring bokou magik from deep New Orleans roots.
A Queer Black Singer, Songwriter, Flutist, Multi-instrumentalist, and Music Therapist, kei weaves together genre-bending, soul-stirring sounds with powerful lyrics and rich storytelling. kei’s music has been described as inherently healing, and so it is. Their dynamic vocals, engaging musicianship, and soulful delivery have been compared to that of Lianne La Havas, Emily King, and Me’shell N’degeocello. Still, kei offers a unique sound all their own. kei's early influences come from the music of the Black Church and beyond. From the hum of their grandmother’s organ to the singing coming off the drums in Congo Square. Like a big pot of gumbo, there’s a lot in the mix! Expansive in genre and gender, kei brings the gospel of freedom frequencies to listeners becoming participants in their own radical authenticity. Learn more and listen: keislaughter.com.
