Kevin Davis & Ban Caribe is a blend of Afro-Cuban/Latin/ Caribbean music laced with soulful rhythm and blues fused together by pulsating percussion beats.
"Clave Soul" is Kevin Davis & Ban Caribe's unique style that replaces the drum set with timbales, congas,
bongos, maracas, steel pan and claves with guitar cords and harmonic vocals.
The group's repertoire is spiritually inspired by traditional African rhythms and chants.
