The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

The internationally touring show KALIMBA, The Spirit of Earth Wind and Fire, provides an experience so satisfying it transports audiences back to the excitement of the first time they heard these unforgettable songs. Reproducing the infectious grooves created by EWF’s late founder, Maurice White, Kalimba pays homage to Maurice with its exciting stage and lighting production. The show authentically replicates the signature high notes of Philip Bailey, the thick vocal harmonies of Maurice and Ralph Johnson, along with the grooving bass lines of Verdine White.

In 2015, Kalimba partnered with the late EWF Guitarist and lead vocalist Sheldon Reynolds, who unfortunately passed in June of 2023 and has taken this show overseas multiple times from Russia to the Middle East. Along with Sheldon, Kalimba has performed with other former members of EWF, such as Gorden Campbell (the drummer who took over after Sonny Emory), David Romero (Percussionist, seven years) and John Johnson (Guitarist, four years). Be ready to hear all of your favorites, including 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 to name a few.
