Kwabs, born Kwabena Sarkodee Adjepong, is big in Germany. The first single of his debut album “Love + War” released in September, titled “Walk” (you can view the official video below), made to the top spot of the German Singles Chart, while it peaked at 71 in the UK (but made it to the top of the iTunes Music Chart). On Friday, November 27 you can see the 25-year-old London born singer live at Munich’s Muffathalle. Tickets cost 23.70 euros and you can get yours from Eventim, support will come from Robb. The November gig won’t be Kwabs first performance at the Munich venue, earlier this year (March) he opened for Sam Smith.
In 2011, Kwabs took part in the BBC TV show “Goldie's Band: By Royal Appointment” of drum-and-bass star Goldie, and was one of twelve chosen to create some musical pieces for a special performance at Buckingham Palace. This culminated in Kwabs appearing in a 2011 presentation with Prince Harry.
The Guardian wrote about Kwabs’ debut album: “With this debut, velvet-voiced singer-songwriter Kwabs joins the likes of Georgia and Lianne La Havas in the ranks of young Brits who don’t conform to making albums containing 12 stylistically uniform songs. He stretches his malleable baritone over music so variable that it has picked up comparisons to James Blake, Seal and – perhaps as a result of the three years he spent in the National Youth Jazz Orchestra – Ella Fitzgerald.” Speaking about Lianne La Havas, she'll also perfom at the Muffathalle this month (19), tickets are also still available from Eventim.
