Tell us a little about your background...
Kevin Haynes Saxophonist,Percussionist from Trinidad & Tobago decent based in London UK, After Finishing performing arts Colleges in London in the 80s, i started out performing as a percussionist and Dancer for a African dance companies and a very Important Afro Brazilian Dance company Oshumare, which helped shape things to come in my concepts as a percussionist and musician. I then started performing with other up and coming UK Black Jazz Artists of the 90s like the The Jazz Warriors, the first Black Big Band in the UK,which was based in London, this was my first experience in a Jazz big band.I then started working with other bands which includes Saxophonist, Steve Williamson, Flutes,Phillip Bent band, Saxophonist, Courtney Pine band Jazz legend Sun Ra,Drummer Clifford Jarvis and his Prophets of Jazz outfit.
As well as other bands Jazz acts i was a sideman in the London jazz scene In the mid 90s and beyond.I would spend Time in New York and Havana Cuba,studying Afro Cuban folkloric music or going to jam sessions in New York, around this period i started doing a few more alto saxophone gigs and when ever there was a chance a quartet gig In 1996/7 i setup my band and performed my first jazz show at the London Jazz cafe Camden town North London, under the band name Kevin Haynes Grupo Elegua. The name comes from the Nigerian Yoruba deity of the crossroads and the messenger of god. He's the Guardian of the Crossroads of Life. Whenever there are decisions to be made, he provides opportunities and second chances. If you're lucky, as a Trickster God, the childlike Elegua can sometimes make things even more complicated. At a whim he can turn a simple choice into a vast conundrum of paradox. I loved the idea of the messenger and that this deity controlled the roads and paths of life - which doors were opened and which were closed in ones destiny.I have been performing with this group for 9 years and have recorded three albums, one with Native music a French Label based in Paris, and two for Egbe Oduniyi productions, my own label. I have been doing shows with different personnels and setups over the years around Europe African Cuba and US my music is a fuses of swing model, Afro Cuban and Nigerian Bata drumming styles with other West African forms from Mali, Senegal

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN...

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Buster Williams
