Yogi with Alex Kajumulo

Hi folks!

I am now playing keyboards with the Band of Alex Kajumulo. Alex is a former soccer star from Tanzania, who, in retirement from soccer, has been traveling the globe teaching soccer to kids and selling a sporting clothes line called Babukaju. He also has done some music along the way. A couple of years ago he decided to release music and promote it around the world, and to form a touring band. His website is

I am happy to say that I was one of the first musicians he called to help form his band. Now Alex has released five records, and he is ready to start touring. Here is some info from Alex's Myspace page

Hello everybody. My name is Alex Kajumulo. I am a recording artist and producer. I have a record label called Babukaju Records and have so far produced five albums. Never Before, Justice for Mankind, Searching for Love, I'm Kool Like That, and Bushman Vision. Never Before has been playing all over the world. One of my songs, Maza Africa, was a finalist in the 2007 International Songwriting Competition. Other songs in the Never Before album have so far been licensed by several organizations.

The first scheduled tour is of Africa in Dec 2009 and January 2010. We will return to Africa in May 2010. We are also arranging tours in Canada and possibly Australia/New Zealand.

We are warming up with a couple of local shows. We will play May 30th 9pm at the 4th Ave Tavern in Olympia. 4th Ave is the premier club for music in dopwntown Olympia. We played there last fall and they told us we brought more people to the club than they had ever had in there before.

We will also be the headliner band at the Black Community Festival on July 4th in Judkins Park in Seattle.

The music is available on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby also.

So look for me at Alex's shows.
