Miami born, Colombia raised. Learning Latin American folk music through the oral tradition of his family and then found himself back in Miami to study Jazz after high school. After years collecting melodies and beats across the Americas, Kiko formed into his own unique mix. A fusion of Afro-Colombian, Reggae, and other Latin world beats thrown in. His music is a celebration of Mother Earth while lamenting the violence and inequality that he has seen in his travels. His songs are relevant and contemporary while strongly honoring it’s roots.
Kiko is poised to release his sophomore album, “Aquas Frías” on March 24th of 2017. He will be bringing his medicine this year to North America, Europe, and Colombia. Stayed tuned for tour dates. To be announced soon.
