Human rights activist, musician (drummer), songwriter, music publisher, film and record producer, original founder and president of both Kama Sutra and Buddah Records. Read all about the history of Kama Sutra and Buddah Records.

Nearly two hundreds hits from the 60s and 70s make Buddah/Kama Sutra the most successful impendent label of all time, it is one the great catalogs in American music, so it’s no surprise that the hits are used frequently. Not only for hit compilations, but also in commercials and movies.

For over 40 years in the recording industry I have realized that talent is a many-splendor thing, in the music business, it’s the God-given gift of the artist, the inventiveness and imagination of the composer, the perception of the A+R man (artist and repertoire) who brings them together, the polishing touches of the Arranger, the administrative skills of the producer, and the market awareness of the promotion and merchandising men and women who take the final product and sing its praises to the world.

July 4, 2001 Hy Mizrahi produced a major live concert at Conventional Hall in Asbury Park, New Jersey “A call for freedom to end child slavery in Sudan”.
