Well, well, well…so it turns out that our live savasana musician for the Buddhi Launch Event is a bit of a big deal. Pete Kuzma, front and center on his yoga mat is a nationally acclaimed musician who has toured the world with the likes of Kanye West, Prince, Sting, Lady Gaga, The Roots, Jill Scott, Akon and too many others to mention. He is a music director, keyboardist, producer, and now final relaxation music expert.
What the heck do you do?
I play piano. When I was younger I had visions of being a jazz star. By star I mean a really good jazz sideman. By really good jazz sideman I mean a super proficient pianist; Less Brad Mehldau, more Joey Calderazzo. Little did young Kuzma realize that jazz is only alive in the areas and people that keep jazz alive. However, this equates to a tinier minority than the tiniest village in certain third world countries. All that usually means is that there’s very little money involved. I mean, I’d play jazz for sea shells (and i have, even if sea shells meant free) but life is expensive. That being said, I started touring and producing with recording artists. See the world, make a little dosh, and EVEN play a little jazz during sound checks! Where did my life go wrong…
