Ishmael Levi is a Brooklyn bred singer, songwriter, and musician with Caribbean roots.
Ishmael Levi is a Brooklyn bred Singer/songwriter/musician with Caribbean roots (Guyana). His mother introduced him to the arts a way to keep him away from the streets. Ishmael Levi started his musical journey playing Africa Djembe percussion in a congregation/ youth program at age 8. As he grew, so did his musical appetite. Ishmael Levi continued to pursue music, learning multiple instruments and styles along the way. It wasn’t until he learned to play guitar that discovered his voice. Shortly after his discovery, he started performing on New York transit platforms. Currently, with his unique style, Ishmael Levi performs all throughout New York City and globally as the lead singer/ guitarist of international Reggae Rock band “British Dependency”. But if you catch him in New York, you might hear him at local venues or on the same New York City transit platforms where he got his start and hones his skills.
