We’ve known the artist, musician, producer, activist and friend Mykel for many, many years now. His unique performance style and unearthly vocal talent along with his soul baring authenticity and charisma all fornicates into a magical musical and theatrical experience with each and every metamorphosis. Finally, he brings his newest version of his Kashmir Nirvana show to The Triad Theatre on the Upper West Side. We’ve witnessed many performers take that intimate stage and are excited for Mykel in his newest artistic endeavour that has a multitude of layers stitched within his Kashmir Nirvana. He tells the quite comical tales of surviving an insane amount of roommates throughout his time in NYC as well as the powerful moment when he survived an assault, a moment that changed the course of his life immediately and forever. He does this all through the magical healing power of song. We definitely suggest you check out Mykel’s Kashmir Nirvana at The Triad on Saturday, September 15th! Check out the press release below to learn more about what to expect from the show, why it is being produced. To top it off, a portion of the proceeds from the night will benefit Swish, a gay/straight alliance that began in NYC some years ago.
