About Brother KAMAU

Washington, D.C. native Kamau Mbonisi Kwame Agyeman could be referred to as a singer and rapper, but his inclination for sound play as much as word play -- inspired by African music, doo wop, and hip-hop alike -- demonstrates that he's a vocalist more so than either specific distinction. The productions that support his voice likewise defy easy categorization, as they've drawn from contemporary pop and rap while reflecting inspirations that include Bobby McFerrin, Vieux Diop, André 3000, and k-os. No Wyld's Ascension EP, released by Columbia in 2015, was the first major recording on which Kamau was heard. The following year, he contributed "The Icarus" to The Birth of a Nation: The Inspired By Album, appeared on No Wyld's full-length Nomads, and released a handful of singles, as well as the six-track A Gorgeous Fortune EP. A full-length set entitled The KAMAU-CASSETTE: ŭRTH GōLD arrived in 2017, including the tender single "MĭNT" featuring Talibah Safiya. ~ Andy Kellman
