Kunle (Nigeria) and Camilo V. play uptown brewery July 9.
Adekunle Olorundare, popularly known as Kunle, is a Nigerian born singer/songwriter. Kunle plays soulful guitar, but with a wide range of influences from rock to Celtic.
Kunle’s first love is his guitar. His unique finger picking and percussive style of play often surprises audiences. He writes his own acoustic songs and accompanies his guitar with rich vocals.
Kunle can now be seen playing at venues across Accra, the centre of Ghana’s arts and music culture, and Canada. Kunle regularly performs with Kojo Serenade, Kyekyeku and Olumiday. He has performed for the Foreign Minister of Germany on an official visit to Ghana and for dignitaries at the British High Commission and United States Embassy. He has played alongside the famous French classical guitarist, Thibault Cauvin. In 2014, Kunle released his first demo, Igba Adara Kale (The Best is Yet to Come).
Kunle sings in Yoruba, English, Pidgin and German.
Camilo Villamizar-Baéz is a Colombian-Canadian guitarist, bassist, and songwriter, most commonly associated with his guitar work in Fredericton’s beloved reggae outfit Dub Antenna, and as a founding member of jam band Before The War, which plays some of his songs. Solo, Camilo pairs up with an acoustic guitar to present his songs raw, as originally written, and seeks to create a personal connection with the audience through an expressive and intimate performance of his own material, peppered with some hand-picked classics, odds, and ends.
