III Kings is a musical venture that was organized by three artists that came together to create a new hybrid of music: a combination of world rhythms and roots reggae with a hip-hop influence. This rhythmic expression combines live acoustic guitars, surfacing bass lines, and worldly percussion, while delivering a message of unity and self worth. In 1999, III Kings met in Boston and began to blend their diverse music styles. Their musical influences and backgrounds hail from across the globe. Themes of West African, Caribbean music, and hip-hop can be heard. Through their music III Kings express their desire to create unique and positive messages that impact the world. Their combination of soulful and socially responsible lyrics creates a unique sound that can be felt by listeners of all walks of life. The III Kings consist of Michael Henry aka Khameleon (vocals), Benjamin Wright (bass), Joshua Melvin (vocals), Michael Hermans (guitar), Amadeu Tolentino aka Madu (vocals), Cannon Dwesse (drums), and Luis Blanco (percussion). Together, this ensemble of musicians continues to inspire other musicians, artists, poets and activists to express themselves by socially and consciously reflecting life.
