Dahi Divine (born July 10, 1992), aka "Sleepy Dah", is better known for his work as a dynamic tenor saxophonist, prolific composer and jazz bandleader that paid his dues working with many world-renowned musicians in the New York City jazz scene. Now, he is exploding onto the contemporary music scene expanding the boundaries of jazz for his generation as a writer, vocalist, hip-hop artist and producer. His latest projects include the release of two mix-tapes; Soundsmith and Soulful Stoner, a compilation of his original jazz and original beats. For you straight-ahead lovers, there’s his debut album The Element.
His current sound is rooted in his jazz studies, the Philadelphia music scene, and is heavily influenced by the mainstream music of his time! Check out this dynamic performer whose shows take audiences on a funky, soulful and swingin’ musical journey
I wanted to create a project that represents my experiences as a young artist and musician that expresses all the trials, life lessons and memorable moments in my life so far. Music has given me everything I have, so I wanted to give my all to this record. From the production standpoint and the songwriting, I really focused on a sound that could relate to the culture of my generation. Plus, the music incorporates all of the information and music passed on from the generations of musicians and influences passed down to me. This record attempts to tackle social issues such as inner city struggles of the youth. Topics include; being different in a black community and trying to find your own sense of confidence, dealing with peer pressure, speaking on relationships that ended when I moved away from New York, and an overall sense of my dedication to the art and, how I can leave a positive impact through it.
