"Kweku N' The Movement @ Mainhall"

November 24th, 2006. On the advice of a friend I went to check out what was going on at Mainhall on Friday. I found no one I recognized or had ever heard of... and couldn't be happier.

I discovered a talented community taking the form of Kweku n' the Movement.

Oh, sweet ensemble. Imagine your high school music teacher, but with charisma, energy and style. Now imagine your music teacher deciding to forego classical training in order to feed your soul. Kweku n' the Movement are musical empowerment.

Piano, sax, horn, bass, guitar, a quartet of swaying vocalists, several guests and a band director who doesn't so much direct the band as invite them to play their hearts out.

Feeling a bit camera shy


From a city that is solidifying its reputation as an indie music goldmine, Kweku & The Movement have emerged from their native Montreal as the answer to a call for a new soul sound.

With influences drawn from such diverse genres as jazz, funk, hiphop, acoustic rock, and soul, this eight-piece group delivers an original blend with innovative arrangements, and smooth vocal harmonies best described as ‘Indie Soul’ music.

The outfit features the songs of Kweku Sam Kwofie a singer/songwriter/band leader, who after extensive musical training in and around the Montreal music scene, has found a home within The Movement. From choral ensembles, to musical theater, to bands, he demonstrates his ability to mould seamlessly into any musical setting, lending his talents to such Montreal-based bands as Afrodizz, Atomic Brothers, Steak This Thick, and AOT. Further examples of his accomplishments include; performing at Montreal’s Place Des Arts under Maestro Dutois, singing with The Joel Miller quintet during the Montreal International Jazz festival as well as roles in Gilbert and Sullivan and off-Broadway productions. It is no surprise that his diverse musical background has provided the foundation for his career as a solo artist.

The Movement is in the business of creating sound with a revolving cast of some of Montreal’s top musicians. Its composition at a rudimentary level includes; a locking rhythm section, two backup vocalists, and a two part horn section. Together, Kweku & The Movement provide an experience that is designed to excite and entice. Their energy infused presence, eclectic sound, and tight groves encourage audiences enough to promise a memorable experience. 2007 presents a year of continued musical growth and increased fan base expansion, as the Kweku & The Movement remain eager and intent to be branded as Montreal’s unique export.
