The Afro-Caribbean band Kalbass Kreyol emerged from the open-mic scene in Alameda, California. In April of 2005 Sophis and his Haitian friend guitarist, Mr.G, founded Kalbass Kreyol.
The band's music is intently designed for dancing. At the center of their sound are elements of Haitian Kompa and Rara which are mélanged with particles of Merengue, Reggae, Salsa, Zouk, Rock and Funk to create an unusual rhythmic formula that keeps their audience glued to the dance floor.
