Nuits d’Afrique présente Kenzow

Thu 21 Jul 2022 • 05:00 pm Afropop / Reggae
- Montréal Gratuit
· by Rédaction PAN M 360

« Je pense que les gens aiment ça parce que c’est nouveau. C’est quelque chose qu’ils n’ont pas l’habitude d’entendre. Ils veulent quelque chose de rafraichissant et c’est ce que j’apporte », expliquait Kenzow à The Gazette, disant du même coup vouloir amener la coolitude de la guitare ouest-africaine dans les rues de la ville. D’une authenticité désarmante et prêt à aborder avec confiance toutes les expériences formatrices, le jeune auteur, compositeur, interprète et musicien autodidacte, fils du célèbre cinéaste Idrissa Ouedraogo et lauréat du Syli de bronze de la musique du monde 2019, manie une pop africaine touchante, inspirée de Reggae et teintée d’urbanité.

Speaking of his busking, Kenzow once told the Montreal Gazette, “I think people like it because it’s new, you know? Because it’s something they don’t hear anytime (…) they want something fresh, that’s what I’m bringing to the street,” as he explained the difference of West African guitar style. With disarming authenticity, the young singer-songwriter and self-taught musician, and son of the celebrated late filmmaker Idrissa Ouedraogo, is always ready to tackle any new musical experience. Winner of the 2019 Bronze Syli de bronze de la musique du monde award, Kenzow plays a moving, reggae-inspired African pop with an urban feel.
