Authentic and contemporary at the same time, comfortably familiar but also unexpected, Michael Kiwanuka will grace the audience of St. Michael’s fortress with his performance. Those lucky enough to attend will enjoy the sounds of soul and blues as if pulled from some '60s vinyl and allow this versatile artist to take them away with his sound and approach.
Kiwanuka, a name he shares with the African god of thunder and lightning, started his musical journey as a session guitarist and accompanied Adele on tour. Per his words, he found his sound mostly in Otis Redding and Jimi Hendrix.
With his debut album Home Again, he already caught the ears of both audience and critics with his casual-on-the-surface but rich-in-essence retro moments. The recognition of Kiwanuka’s talent is evident in the awards he’s achieved, such as the BBC Sound of 2012 for most promising new musician, as well as the HiPipo award dedicated to people of great significance in promoting African artistic excellence.
The following album Love & Hate only strengthened the sense of an artist whose work resists time. Cold Little Heart became a theme song of Big Little Lies series, while Black Man in a White World was featured in The Get Down, Lovesick, Dear White People and Suits.
A warm summer evening at St. Michael’s fortress will perfectly complement the vintage atmosphere of Kiwanuka’s songs!
