Michael Kiwanuka in Prague

12.07.2022

Michael Kiwanuka in Prague! Michael Kiwanuk’s third album called KIWANUKA was released on October 25, 2019 on Polydor Records, and music fans in the Czech Republic can rejoice at the announcement that they will be able to hear it live on July 12 at the Karlín Forum.

The album Kiwanuka follows the album Love & Hate, which was released in July 2016 and received enthusiastic reviews and first place in the album chart. Michael Kiwanuka has been nominated twice for the Mercury Prize, three times for the BRIT award and has been declared the winner of BBC Sound 2012. Last year’s album KIWANUKA was recorded in New York, Los Angeles and London. In the studio, Michael again collaborated with the production team consisting of Danger Mouse and Inflo. The album is similar to the previous one shrouded in psychedelic haze, but it is diverse – you will hear the response of greats like Gil Scott-Heron, Bobby Womack or Otis Redding. Michael worked on the record for two years.

Michael says of the album: “The previous album was very introspective and probably worked as a therapy. This is more about a sense of satisfaction who I am and what I want to say. How to stay firm and come up with a challenge for yourself and your listeners? It’s a record about accepting oneself, but more triumphantly than just melancholy. It’s an album that explores what it means to be a human being today.”

“Kiwanuka” is the result of the remarkable growth of an exceptionally talented musician. He inscribed his natural talent into a work that combines various complicated themes – black identity, violence and self-doubt – and is atmospheric and moody. “The things you like in the end are often the things you want to hide. And those are probably the things that unite us.” Telling people who you really are, truthfully and infallibly, has never been so exciting. The album “Kiwanuka” is recently nominated for the Best British Album NME 2020 Awards. We will find out the results during the gala evening, which will take place at the O2 Academy in London on 12 February.
