29 / 01 / 2012 NINJA Review


Soul at its best!
The 24 year old Michael Kiwanuka is a British soul musician of Ugandan heritage who first came on our radar with his,for his tender age quite suprisingly mature sounding EP "Tell me a tale" released ealier in 2011.His voice and the authenticity of his music could very well come from times long past, but still there is something fresh about his approach to 60s soul.

His new three-song EP "Home again" gives us a glimpse of whats to come on his album which will be release in March 2012. Its nothing new, maybe so far some of the weakest I have heard of him, but it is still far from disappointing. Again he gives us a pleasant and timeless listening experience with soothing vocals that settle the nerves and surround you with nostalic vibes as you can feel the spirit of some of his biggest influences such as Otis Redding, Al Green or Bill Withers.
