To the question 'Why music?' Kwela answers, 'Why life?'
In this episode I chat to Kwela - poet, rapper, producer and vocalist from internationally renowned cult band Kwani Experience.
We talk about uncomplicated relationships with your medium, how learning to rap helped him with his vocabulary, touring the world, using the voice as a texture in recordings, how being a dad has impacted his career, and forays into creating solo material (and recording it in his own studio!)
The is also the episode where Kwela suggests starting the Shotgun Story Spotify playlist (and adds to it beautifully...)
