Pierre Kwenders

(Canada)


Gigs

Venue
Date / Time
12:00pm Thursday

Afro-Canadian singer/songwriter Pierre Kwenders’ music is a response to a world that so often asks people who fit comfortably in multiple boxes to pick only one. While Pierre’s music ranges from icy R&B to futuristic hip-hop, his style is rooted in Congolese rumba, the ubiquitous sound of The Democratic Republic of Congo. He also sings and raps in five languages, allowing him aesthetic options most artists cannot. Kwenders 2014 full-length Le Dernier Empereur Bantou established him as a torchbearer for a new wave of African artists.
