KUNDE / releaseparty + DEADBEAT LARRY


Kunde (Ku:ndeɪ), aka Joram Kunde Boumkwo, is a Belgian-Cameroonian rapper, producer, and multi-instrumentalist who blends hip-hop with elements of contemporary jazz, P-funk and Afrobeat.

Surrounded by his father's Pan-African polyrhythmic music and his own collection of nineties hip-hop, he developed a passion for beatboxing and beatmaking at the age of ten. Later, the artist from Ghent unfolded into a pianist, vocalist, and bass guitarist. As a self-taught musician, he crafted his unique sound reminiscent of artists such as Anderson .Paak, Patrice Rushen, Quincy Jones, Fela Kuti, and Kendrick Lamar.

Recently, he expanded his solo project into a vibrant live band experience with Léa Kadian (bass), Creo Cristoria (saxophone), Jérôme Pringiers (keys), and Simon Derover (drums).

His energetic performances leave no one untouched!

In his album 'Dandelion' - W.E.R.F. Records 09.02.24 - he employs storytelling, rap, spoken word and field recordings from his experiences in Cameroon to explore the complexity of his Afro-Belgian identity, intergenerational traumas, toxic masculinity, and neocolonialism.

His honest and raw lyrics are carried by warm and danceable sounds. Just like in his previous instrumental album 'Meanwhile' (San-Kofa Rhythm Records, 2021) and EP 'From Roots to Fruits' (Mellow Minds, 2018), he effortlessly weaves together various genres into a groovy and vibrant whole.
