We are almost at the end of season 4 (can you believe it?!?) and we are not slowing down! This week, we got to catch up with a the very special and unique musician, Chai Tulani. Chai’s a singer and songwriter that incorporates soul, hiphop and blues into a unique style he calls soul hop!
Chai is currently based in Chicago, but is a Kenyan native who moved to the states when he was four years old. He’s been into music since he was young, but took the leap to make it his career four years ago. When he describes his style of music, for him, it doesn’t really fit into one genre. So instead of trying to fit in, he creates with an electric mix of Hip-Hop, Soul, R&B with a sprinkle of Reggae and we are here for it! We talked to him about what his music means to him, and all of the elements of creativity that make his songs sound good to him. Going to one of Chai’s shows, you will see that not only does he incorporate this Kenyan vibes into his music, but he infuses it into his personal style as well! Chai talked to us about some of his biggest marketing strategies. He’s not afraid to put in the work. He believes in the power of performing at open-mics’, putting his music on Soundcloud (of course!), and surprisingly, the power of UBER!! What?!
In this episode, Chai gives us a taste of some of the details for his second official project release called Rebxl. We’re so excited to hear his upcoming project on November 22nd and to support him along the way! So give him a follow on Insta’ and take a listen to his most popular songs on Soundcloud.
