One World Tribe
Hip Hop, Reggae, Funk, Latin Music, World Music
Songwriter | Safe Driver
Detroit-born Kennedy Thompson held his vision fast of a band that could "perform a lot of the styles that I enjoyed listening to". Since his interests covered everything from funk to reggae to jazz to latin to world music to fusion, he sought musicians who could move between these styles. He also selected a group that "would be rooted in social activism."
After spending literally years hand selecting his players, he introduced One World Tribe to the world in 1994 in the Eastern Great Lakes Region of the United States. Through his efforts and his vision the group continues to expand its influence and extend its family of friends and fans.
Kennedy holds a degree in percussion from the D'Angelo School of Music, and has studied, performed, composed and arranged music for decades. He is the founder and CEO of Billionaire Records, a label currently developing Hiphop artists in the Cleveland-Pittsburgh-Buffalo area. He is the music director of One World Tribe, and arranges much of the material.
