Tonight we welcomed Kin Balam into the studio to share his guitar-driven music with us. Balam’s music brings together various elements of Flamenco, Latin American, Afro Latin Jazz, Indigenous Mesoamerican and Hip Hop to create a style that he calls “the language of our humanity”. His guitar playing is amazing, and his raps and songs have a lot of depth and passion.
Listen to Kin Balam’s interview, as well as a live performance of two of his original songs, here:
