Bio

With a style that inherently nods at UK Grime and Drill, but also drawing on influences from acts including Fela Kuti, Tony Allen and Hiatus Kaiyote, Kam-Bu’s music points to a unique and singular talent who can effortlessly oscillate between party anthems and laser-like lyricism focusing on issues of community, politics, environment and sustainability (in part, inspired by a father who works in Community Outreach for Lambeth Council). An artist that is just as comfortable walking in Martine Rose’s SS20 catwalk show, appearing in a Bianca Saunders campaign and featuring in Gucci’s new Imagined Futures collaboration with Farfetch as he is working with the likes of Leon Vynehall on creating a differentiated and diverse sound palette, Kam-Bu is a varied and impeccable young artist incapable of being pigeonholed.
