Dynamic frontman & harp player Aki Kumar is a rising star among the next generation of SF Bay Area bluesmen. A master of the amplified Chicago blues sound, Kumar inherits his style from the harp legends of the 1950s and 60s. Aki has a unique voice in the blues, blending elements of blues harmonica pioneers of yesteryear with a signature sound of his own. Kumar has shared the stage with some of the finest contemporary blues greats: Kim Wilson, Joe Louis Walker, Ron Thompson, Little Charlie Baty, Junior Watson, and more.
