Kuku and Christylez LIVE Tonight at Bohemian Caverns in DC

I tell anyone who will listen that I had a rare opportunity to work with the acoustic soul artist Kuku in early 2002 right before he emblazoned a mighty path as an independent solo artist. At the time, Kuku was a unique vocalist-- sans the guitar-- who infused Marvin and Al Green in his vocal stylings but had not yet created his signature sound we know now so well and love. He co-wrote the song "I'm High" featured on and performed by our defunct band Phreaknahdo, and has a whole host of lyrical credit to his name, mostly all of the songs that he performs originals from his brain to his pen. Since then, Kuku has performed across the country, been featured on film soundtracks and collaborated with many luminaries including the jazz soul vocalist Vinx.

Kuku will be performing tonight at the famous Bohemian Caverns on U street in DC-- the very street where Kuku grew his audience and honed his craft as an instrumentalist and vocalist. He will be performing with the incomprable Christylez in a two-man show. Visit Liberated Muse to get the details on the event.
