    The nationally touring show Kalimba, The Spirit of Earth, Wind and Fire provides an Earth Wind & Fire experience so satisfying, it transports audiences back to the excitement of the first time they heard these unforgettable songs.

Performances authentically replicate the signature high notes of Maurice White’s sidekick, Philip Bailey. 

    Playing across the country at some of the nations most prestigious and historic theaters, music festivals, state fairs, corporate events and functions, casino’s, and larger clubs as well as upscale private parties and weddings, Kalimba, The Spirit of Earth Wind and Fire includes all of the hits: September, Shining Star, Boogie Wonderland, After the Love Has Gone, Let's Groove, That's the Way of the World, Devotion, Reasons, Sing a Song, Can't Hide Love, Getaway, Fantasy, and Love's Holiday just to name a few.
