Keys, Strings, Winds, and Skins

Dayan (“DAY-uhn”) Kai is a true force of musical nature. He has marveled at and studied every instrument he could find from a very young age. Since then, his classical and jazz training on various instruments, combined with a penchant for exploration and the the crossing of borders, has led him to play a vast array of music over the past decades including blues, jazz, Americana, Hawaiian, bluegrass, Latin, reggae, world, funk, and much more. 

With the release of his new album, “To Be Free,” Dayan Kai moves into a minimalist essence with his stunning vocals rising out and above the acoustic guitar. The album features several new songs as well as others that he has shared only in live performance. His songs touch the deep chords of our humanity and connect us to ourselves and each other. 

Dayan Kai’s golden spirit and deep insight into the human condition combined with his virtuous musicality and soulful voice make him a beloved singer/songwriter and top-notch band member. He is a favorite at many musical festivals. 

Dayan Kai currently resides on the island of Maui where he was born.
