Kaya, sometimes known as ‘Official Kaya’ are an energetic 5-piece live group fusing together Hip Hop, Soul, Pop, Dub and Reggae.

All band members individually had accomplished careers as musicians, coming from different musical backgrounds and forming Kaya to create a new sound for the masses. Their songs consistently combine powerful and addictive hooks, catchy melodies, and thought-provoking lyrics. Natty’s career began over a decade ago with the launch of UK HipHop label Defcon Records, a label focusing on the then largely undiscovered talent on the UK HipHop circuit.

He has had a strong career as a solo artist and is well liked amongst the HipHop fraternity and music media, both for his talents and his charity work. Guitarist Matt plays a central role within the group and has a truly amazing energy and passion for the music. Finding success as a remixer in the past, he contributes to a lot of the band’s song writing and production sound and is certainly the driving force behind the band. Songstress Aina has worked with a vast array of talented acts and producers over the years and featured alongside both Natty and Matt in a previous band that was voted BBC Radio 1’s Unsigned Band of the Year. The trio joined up to form a new band Kaya with the arrival of the 2 Toms to complete the line-up. Aina brings amazing vocal melodies and captive lyrics to the band which compliments Natty’s vocal style perfectly. Tom Y is a true musician who can play many instruments and has significant skills both with playing and recording music.

His role is Bass but contributes heavily towards the song-writing and production of the band alongside Matt. Tom H brings a powerful percussive force to the group as a precision drummer, tightly holding together the rhythm section with Matt and Tom Y. He can play many styles and a typical Kaya stage show will see him knocking out a whole range of rhythms including live drum n bass, which never fails to get the crowd jumping. He has featured in a variety of bands in the past of various styles and brings a rhythmic stability to Kaya’s live music. Devoting a lot of time to charity causes such as Music4Children and Task Brasil, Kaya relentlessly helps to raise funds through live performance as an ongoing long-term cause.

Natty, Aina and Tom Y founded and continue to run Defcon Workshops, an initiative to help educate teenagers in musical skills such as composing music, production, lyric-writing and more. So successful has this been that vocalist Natty was appointed as an Ambassador of the Prince's Trust as a result. 2010 sees the dawn of a new era for Kaya with the release of their debut album 'Look Beneath The Surface', with Kaya's lead track and first single 'Rat Race' due for release over the summer.
