Kadesh Flow is a rapper with an MBA, a trombone Super Saiyan, and a Billboard Charting recording/ performing artist. He brings all of the above together, both on tracks and on stage, in riveting form as he actively blends his jazz and hip hop backgrounds. Desh’s most recent project, Motivated, has been hailed as visceral, real, and boasting astounding energy. Kadesh blends personal, candid lyrical moments and storytelling with call-outs to history, social issues, anime, video games, and anything else that may inspire him at the time.

At age 11, ‘Desh, as many of his listeners call him, began rapping and playing trombone within two weeks of one another. Now, he can be heard playing on records with hip hop stars like Jidenna and underground stalwarts like Strange Music’s Ubiquitous and JL. He also boasts performances supporting artists such as Rakim, Janelle Monae, Dave East, The Revivalists, Tech N9ne, and numerous other prolific acts.

Kadesh is a member of the NPC (Nerdy People of Color) Collective, through which he is working with Founding Member Mega Ran and fellow NPCs such as EyeQ and Creative Mind Frame to both collaborate on fun, relevant content and foster a community for underrepresented nerd enthusiasts. Currently he is lighting up stages around the country, gracing such events as Official SXSW Showcases, MAGFest, PAX West, Anime Expo, Momocon & Otakon, as well as various other music festivals and venues throughout the continental U.S.
