Currently a member of ABOGIDA band touring with Teddy Afro, he also runs his own independent label, ETK MUSIC, under which he has released two albums 'Mystic Groove' and ' Glimpse of Victory'. A combination of world, jazz and Reggae music like never mixed before, 'Mystic Groove' transports you into the planes of strong rhythms and hypnotic grooves with subtle yet distinct melodies paving the way. 'My primary motivation for completing the project 'Mystic Groove' is to bring forth the mystical rhythms of Reggae to a wider audience. I have always been moved by the subtle yet powerful rhythm of the 'one drop' beat that mainly categorizes Reggae music from the rest. I believe different types of music affect different parts of the human self and Reggae goes right to the spirit'. The album is also available for download on iTunes.
