Rhythm Nomads is a percussion driven pop/jazz/world music project featuring original Vinx songs and Vinx-ified standards. Rhythm Nomads was developed in partnership with Massamba Diop, one of the original members of Baaba Maal's Daande Lenol Orchestra and known world wide as Senegal's treasured talking drum master. With Vinx's sophisticated arrangements, jazz improvisation and soaring vocals, Rhythm Nomads is an exploration of modern day Afro-Pop.

VINX is undoubtedly one of the most gifted improvisational vocalists performing today. With songs that range from jazz to funk, bossa nova to blues and back again, each audience takes a world tour with VINX as their private guide. Soaring vocals, intricate layered melodies and grooves, and that primal hand drum holding it all together mark the signature style that makes VINX a stand out among world class vocalists. Infused with tastes from around the world, his songwriting is a tour de force combining the best in storytelling with the heart and soul of a true balladeer. Although he is often joined by a range of stunning musicians, he is unique in that his fined tuned composition skills, mastery of in-the-moment vocal looping and razor sharp instincts infuse his solo performance with the lushness of a full symphony orchestra. But don’t be fooled by the force of his talent, his aim is to make it feel good and groove!



VINX has recorded and toured with some of the music industry’s greatest icons: Stevie Wonder, Sting, Herbie Hancock, Sheryl Crow, Branford Marsalis, Ernie Watts, Taj Mahal, Ricki Lee Jones, Darius Rucker, Vance Gilbert, Cassandra Wilson, Brenda Russell, Cher and numerous others. His songwriting credits are a long list ranging from Tom Jones and Will Downing to The Lion King and Sprite™. He currently teaches at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and Dreamsicle Arts & Entertainment Group is home to his production company, studios and acclaimed workshop series.(www.dreamsiclearts.com)
