ABOUT US

What is YAYA's KITCHEN

We are Sarah Cruse and Toby Salciccia.

We met in a Reiki Class in early 2013
There was something...A feeling...A curiosity…hmmmm what was it?
We discovered that we both of us loved music. Toby who was signed to a label in the mid 90’s with the band De’Briah, is a guitar and bass guitar player with some good old honky tonk vocals...Mmmhmm.

Our STORY

We discovered that we both of us loved music. Toby who was signed to a label in the mid 90’s with the band De’Briah, is a guitar and bass guitar player with some good old honky tonk vocals...Mmmhmm. I am a poet, with roots in the Los Angeles Poetry scene, it was my birth place as an artist. I later discovered the healing powers of sound, the power of my voice, and that I could write my own songs and sing...A Hallelujah moment indeed~*

We first played together at Inner Light Ministries in Soquel California, and it felt like something greater was inviting us to continue. Yaya’s Kitchen is a container for dynamic, co-creative and inspired music to happen…SoulFolk with a HipHop twist, we are cooking it up and serving it up...and it is delicious.
