Nigerian-born musician, Kunle, will be in concert with Camilo V. at Grimross Brewing Co in Fredericton on Saturday July 9th at 7:30pm.
Kunle bridges his contemporary singer/songwriter style with roots in West African rhythms and stories. Nigerian-born and currently based in Toronto, Kunle brings together his rich vocals, unique guitar tapping, harmonica and talking drum to take audiences into what he terms 'music with no boundaries'. Kunle has performed at folk festivals in Ontario and West Africa, including Mariposa Folk Festival. This summer he will be showcased at Peterborough Folk Festival and Blue Skies Folk Festival. In 2015, he opened for Shaggy (Mr.Bombastic himself!) for a special performance in Toronto. That same year, his instrumental song “My Little Fingers” was awarded for best instrumental by Folk Music Ontario.
Kunle captivates audiences with his stories, all the while getting them to sing along and teaching them a proverb or two in local African languages. Kunle’s performances are a cultural event to celebrate West Africa music and heritage, but also an evening of showcasing his percussion-style guitar playing and beautiful songwriting.
Just back from Europe and Africa, this performance is part of Kunle’s 5 country tour to showcase his EP, Amí N Relé, which means home sweet home in his native language Yoruba. The Fredericton concert date is produced by Roots and Soul Music Promotions, based out of Fredericton.
