“People want something refreshing,” Kenzow told The Gazette, also saying he wanted to bring West African guitar coolness to the city streets.
Idrissa Ouedraogo's son handles African pop inspired by reggae, sometimes wandering into soukous corners.
A young singer-songwriter, originally from Burkina Faso, he left his luggage in Montreal two years ago, after passing through France. We can also hear him playing music in the streets of Montreal or in the metro. With urban afro pop and reggae sounds in the West African style, Kenzow wants to touch and move as many people as possible, regardless of their origins. Very inspired, the musician spends his time in search of new sounds, often accompanied by his guitar. Son of the famous African director Idrissa Ouedraogo, Kenzow has been rocked by art and culture since his childhood.
In 2018, he won the 3rd prize in the grand finale of the Syli d'or of world music.
