The Soulkestra Says Goodbye To Angelamia Bachemin

Angelamia Bachemin Leaves The Soulkestra

We are sad to share with our fans that Angelamia Bachemin, drummer and founder of The Jazz Hip Hop Orchestra, has parted ways with the Soulkestra.

Angelamia brought depth and funk to the Soulkestra and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.  Her contribution to the band is greatly appreciated and we’re so proud to have had her come through the Soulkestra family.  Her contributions will not soon be forgotten.
