"Kal Nwaneri combines his African background with American influences to create some trippy rock music full of high energy beats and bang-your-head rock". - Richmond.com


"Kal Nwaneri Band is one of those bands that came out of nowhere....... I checked these guys out and fell in love with their African tribal sounds-meets American rock and roll".

- Richmond Playlist


"Kal Nwaneri Band has the music and presence that could fill a stadium with roaring fans. They combine African and American influences to bring heavy rhythms, inspiring lyrics, and an innovative sound that we find to be missing from the mainstream genres. Fronting the band is none other than Kal Nwaneri; originally from Aba, a small city in Nigeria, he’s had to overcame many hardships through his years to get to where he is today. The ongoing hope needed to overcome the everyday obstacles of living in an impoverished area is illustrated through his music. Motivation and music brought him out of the ghettos, into the studio, and onto the stage.

As a writer and producer, Nwaneri has recorded with many notable artists such as Elephant Man, Mya, and Will Smith, and is currently writing and recording on his own upcoming LP which we’re highly anticipating"!

Bio

Many artists leave their homes to find influences while others absorb what is around them to create their work. Kal Nwaneri was able to do both. His African background combined with American influences has allowed him to create exceptional music that ushers in a wave of new artists creating their own distinct sound.

Born in Nigeria, Kal is the first Igbo Alternative, Pop, Rock artist in America. This group of distinct African people has been shaped by many other cultures from around the globe. Kal has taken the traditional African rhythms, Caribbean melodies and contemporary American pop to create a fresh and distinct sound that has been missing from popular music. He formed The Kal Nwaneri Band in late 2009 and has been delighting audiences up and down the East Coast ever since.
