Michael Kiwanuka



Tent Stage


Ever since his second album “Love & Hate” in 2016, Michael Kiwanuka has been regarded as the new king of soul – a great reputation that the Brit has worked all the harder to earn. The North Londoner learnt his craft early, first by studying jazz, then as a studio guitarist and finally as a solo artist, who has created some of the most influential soul songs of recent years. The current, Grammy-nominated “KIWANUKA” from 2019, Michael’s third and most mature album to date, also featured two top international producers at the mixing desk, Inflo and Danger Mouse – the latter’s clients include U2, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Norah Jones. Described by the Guardian as one of the “greatest albums of the decade” and honoured with the prestigious Mercury Prize for the best British pop album of 2020, Kiwanuka’s socially critical soul music has reached new heights. His 70s soul is repeatedly charged with guitar sounds in the spirit of early Prince and blossoms into a contemporary production that is second to none: We can hardly wait to be embraced by Michael’s opulent soul.
