Kenny (The Human Orchestra) has put an entirely new twist on the art that some of us would immediately call the human beat box. He defines the human body as the first instrument. Through an awesome manipulation of his own body, Kenny summons Afro Cuban, Jazz, Rock, Reggae, Salsa, House, Techno, Jungle, Drum & Bass, Trance, and Hip Hop rhythms from the depths of his soul to create amazing music.

Even after a near death experience in which his left lung was punctured in a car accident, Kenny was still blessed to be able to continue to master his craft on a much higher level. Constantly on a rigorous performance schedule, The Human Orchestra has performed across Africa, Japan, Europe, and throughout the United States. He has developed a worldwide fan base, captivating thousands as he shared the stage with Public Enemy, Mindless Self Indulgence, Matisyahu, Squarepusher, The X-ecutioners, Regina Bell, The Gap Band, Maxwell, Angie Stone, Stevie Wonder, Vernon Reid, and Take 6, just to name a few.

In addition to his work with Hip Hop, R&B, and Jazz artists, Kennys repertoire includes incredible performances with The New York Symphony Orchestra at Manhattan Center (conducted by David Eaton), and The King Sey Jung Hall in Seoul Korea with violinist Eugene Park (Sony). He has appeared on CBS This Morning, Good Day New York at Carnegie Hall, and was a three-time consecutive winner on Showtime At The Apollo. Variety Magazine touted Kenny as the James Brown version of Bobby McFerrin.

The Human Orchestra has also been seen and heard in several nationwide television and radio commercials, all of which he wrote and created. Advertising endorsements include Gatorade, as well as a Burger King spot that was nominated for a Cleo award. Kenny has performed on Much Music, MTV2 and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, amongst others.

When you get the opportunity, take a melodious ride of sight, sound, and imagination with Kenny Muhammad, The Human Orchestra.

One day it all came to an end, when he fell from a tree at work. Suffering from severe internal bleeding, he spent the next year recovering from surgeries. Bryan decided to take advantage of his dance skills and make the move to Los Angeles, California. He quickly became a successful dancer in the industry, by working with Rihanna, Marques Houston, Michelle Williams, Nike, and Puma just to name a few.

When most people would be satisfied and comfortable, Bryan’s extreme will and motivation pushed him even further to where he felt compelled to conquer his passion for motorcycles.
