Recently ranked one of the Top 20 World/Reggae acts of 2010 in Oakland, California by Reverb Nation, Akwerius brings a crucial sound for the nu generation (Website: http://afrorootshop.com).

After touring the Midwest and West Coast over the past three years, kwe is about to release his first collection of poems (dirges of be-coming), a manuscript accepted for the Masters of Arts in the Humanities at the University of Chicago (2003). The poetry book comes with a new album entitled Dawn, featuring 7-tracks recorded with various artists including Habib Koite (Aspen, 2007), and productions by one of the best roots/dub bands out of Boston, Circadian Riddims. The album blends flowing vocals, spoken word and electro-acoustic vibes into powerful sound messages. kwe’s poetry was first introduced to the United States in Boston where he independently released his first solo project Sonrise in 2002.

His group (The Aquarian Project) has a new studio and live DVD album in the works that is scheduled to release in the summer of 2010.
