Kae Sun is the musical project of Kwaku Darko-Mensah Jnr., an artist with influences steeped in afrobeat, contemporary R&B, and indie folk. Following his 2009 debut album Lion on a Leash, Kae’s break out came in 2013 with the release of his critically-acclaimed sophomore album Afriyie. It showcased his peerless, delicate vocal delivery atop rich rhythmic foundations and memorable melodies that take influence from different decades and a world of styles, shaping a new breed of African alternative pop music. The record’s lead single, “Ship and the Globe” charted in Europe, Canada, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong and reached over 4 million views on YouTube.
2017 saw the release of the EP Canary, a collection of songs that gathered over 250k streams on Spotify, garnered numerous picks and reviews including a spot in CBC list of 10 albums to look forward to in 2017, and led to a headlining show at Festival Nuits d’Afrique in Montreal.
Kae Sun was recently featured in Moonshine’s SMS: Location Vol. 1 mixtape which Fader calls, “…a genre-busting must listen.” Check out the mixtape HERE. More tour dates will be announced when available.
