Translation of Tribute from Vincent Oudot:
I just learned with great sadness the death of this great musician that was Kenyatte Abdur-Rahman. But it was more than a drummer and percussionist who played with Max Roach, Freddie Hubbard, Lionel Hampton and Lena Horne. He was also one of the pillars of clicks Gil Scott-Heron, he was also one of the founders of the legendary band Lasts Poet, "the great father of the HBP" (Rhythm And Poetry), of which he was musical director for many years. Kenyatte landed his Big Apple, if I remember correctly, two decades ago (already) one day in Nancy, love. There were beautiful children with Valerie Orbillot. What memories with him until dawn jams, radio broadcasts "franglais", parts of laughs, memorable exchanges, but this concert, the video illustrates this post with Jalal Mansur-Nuriddin, Hakim Lalmi, Marc and Jean-Luc Pandulf Deat in the first edition of Teranga Festival that we organized in 2006. Kenyatte was also plenty of musical adventures in our region (difficult to mention all the musicians with whom he played without forget), where he has also left an indelible mark. Kenyatte, rest in peace, you will remain beyond your kindness and everything you represent artistically, and that's huge, a friend ...



From: Vincent Oudot Monday, November 02, 2015
J'apprends à l'instant et avec une immense tristesse, la disparition de ce grand musicien qu'était Kenyatte Abdur-Rahman. Mais il était plus que ce batteur et ce percussioniste qui a joué avec Max Roach, Freddie Hubbard, Lionel Hampton ou Lena Horne. Il était également l'un des piliers de la clique à Gil Scott-Heron, Il fut aussi l'un des fondateurs du légendaire groupe Lasts Poet, "les grands père du RAP" (Rythm And Poetry), dont il fut directeur musical durant de très nombreuses années. Kenyatte a débarqué de sa Big Apple, si ma mémoire est bonne, il y a deux décennies (déjà), un jour, à Nancy, par amour. Il y a eu de beaux enfants avec Valérie Orbillot. Que de souvenirs avec lui : des jams jusqu'au petit matin, des émissions de radio en "franglais", des parties de rigolades, des échanges inoubliables, mais aussi ce concert, dont la vidéo illustre ce post, avec Jalal Mansur-Nuriddin, Hakim Lalmi , Marc Pandolf et Jean-Luc Déat à la première édition de Teranga Festival que nous avions organisée en 2006. Kenyatte a été de beaucoup d'aventures musicales également dans notre région (difficile de citer tous les musiciens avec qui il a joué sans en oublier), où il aura aussi laissé une trace indélébile. Kenyatte, repose en paix, tu resteras au-delà de ta gentillesse et de tout ce que tu représentes artistiquement, et c'est immense, un ami...
