Shenzi
Shenzi
SHENZI is a Miami based, multi-genre quintet that emphasizes artistic authenticity and the art of story telling within our musical and lyrical compositions. Our goal is to document, challenge, and engage our audience through the mediums of sound and visual.

Each member of the band comes from different musical backgrounds, but we are all well versed in Soul, Jazz, Rock, Hip Hop, and other modern elements. We try to keep an eclectic repertoire in our arsenal.
