L.A. based band Kan Wakan are coming over to our shores for the first time to perform and will be releasing an EP to coincide with those dates. ‘Midnight Moon EP’ is out 5th May on Virgin EMI and lead-track ‘Like i Need You’ can be heard below.
Kan Wakan formed in early 2012, the musical brainchild of composer / producer / multi-instrumentalist Gueorgui I. Linev. The Bulgarian born musician originally set out to create solely instrumental music inspired by his lifelong passion for classical minimalism, but the involvement of chanteuse Kristianne Bautista and producer / guitarist Peter Potyondy rapidly saw the project grow in both scope and purpose. With a name inspired by the Tagalog (Kristianne’s native language) word for interstellar / outer space ‘Kalawakan’, the core trio expanded like their titular counterpart to include another four members live.
The UK tour dates for Kan Wakan are as follows…
Friday 2nd May – Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, London
Saturday 3rd May – East Village Arts Club, Liverpool Sound City
Sunday 4th May – House Concert Sessions, York
Tuesday 6th May – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
