WALK TALK

In an era where imitation is the rule of thumb, Walk Talk is staking their claim to the groovy avant-garde of post-pop panache. A delicious duet much-buzzed about in the Northeast, Walk Talk is born of the musical partnership of Mayteana Morales and David Bailis. The prolific pair of NYC-based multi-instrumentalists are well-acquainted, after nearly a decade deep touring the globe as former members of the critically-acclaimed future-funk outfit Pimps of Joytime. Morales is currently on tour performing with Durand Jones & the Indications.

Walk Talk identifies as a culmination of time, genre, travel, rhythm, and dance; manifesting love variations and soul vibrations through original songcraft and electrifying live performance. The longtime co-conspirators have re-emerged as an exciting new and dynamic duo; Walk Talk offers a fresh and inspired take on Soul, High-Life Afro-rhythms, quiet storm R&B, golden-era Hip-Hop, boogie Funk, and blissfully beyond. Morales and Bailis steadily unveil a creative canvas on which these passionate artists draw original soundscapes, rhythms, and sensualized harmonies, intoxicating elixirs that resonate deeply across a wide swath of demographics and genres.



PAPIBA AND FRIENDS

Papiba & Friends, features three visionary and unconventional musicians with a long history of living and performing in Santa Cruz.  

Guitar player, singer, song writer Papiba Godinho is the founder of one of Santa Cruz’s favorite local bands, SambaDá.  Pabiba is also a capoeira mestre and runs a Brazilian cultural center in Santa Cruz, CA. 

Bass player and vocalist Etienne Franc, aka roKsta OrKestra, has been performing locally and internationally for over 20 years.  Etienne is a member of SambaDá, and Paradise Soul Savers and also serves as musical director at Inner Light Ministeries.  

Gary Kehoe is a fixture of the Santa Cruz music scene.  Some may remember him from the amazing world music group, Special Fun.  Gary also plays in SambaDá and is also a featured drummer and percussionist with many other groups in town.  

A collision of rock, soul, funk and samba with members hailing from Brazil, Minnesota and Brooklyn, this group takes current world music and stirs it up to create a refreshing new sound.

A delicious duet much-buzzed about in the Northeast, Walk Talk is born of the musical partnership of Mayteana Morales and David Bailis. The prolific pair of NYC-based multi-instrumentalists are well-acquainted, nearly a decade deep touring the globe as two-fifths of the critically-acclaimed future-funk outfit Pimps of Joytime.

    Walk Talk identifies as a culmination of time, genre, travel, rhythm, and dance; manifesting love variations and soul vibrations through original songcraft and electrifying live performance. The longtime co-conspirators have re-emerged as an exciting new and dynamic duo; Walk Talk offers a fresh and inspired take on Soul, High-Life Afro-rhythms, quiet storm R&B, golden-era Hip-Hop, boogie Funk, and blissfully beyond.

    Percussionist/vocalist extraordinaire, Mayteana Morales needs no introduction, her list of collaborators includes Afrobeat stalwarts Antibalas; she appears on their celebrated 2017 LP Where the Gods Are in Peace. Mayteana is the featured vocalist on legendary funk drummer Bernard Purdie's recent comeback smash "Deep in Love" as well as next-generation Brooklyn Afro-funkers Ikebe Shakedown's debut LP. Morales and David Bailis shared discography with Pimps of Joytime is well-documented. Bailis is no stranger to the world of hip-hop, having toured with Fugees-affiliate John Forte. David has also written and performed with Sierra Leone born, Brooklyn, NY-bred Bajah & the Dry Eye Crew. His guitar-wizardry can be heard spraying textures within his own jazz-rock trio DB3, whose 2018 debut record was released on the venerable Ropeadope Records.
