"Pierre Kwenders released a whimsical album that he's paired with a live show that's magnificent and visually stunning." Noisey

Afro-Canadian singer/songwriter Pierre Kwenders’ music is a response to a world that so often asks people who fit comfortably in multiple boxes to pick only one. While Pierre’s music ranges from icy R&B to futuristic hip-hop, his style is rooted in Congolese rumba, the ubiquitous sound of The Democratic Republic of Congo.

With his new full-length album, out on September 2017, Pierre looks to build on the success of his debut. Produced entirely by Seattle-based Fly Guy Dai (aka Tendai Maraire of Shabazz Palaces), this new album pivots from Bantou's housey thump to something more instrumental, incorporating strong African influence and old-school West Coast hip-hop vibes into Kwenders unique recipe. 
 

Pierre Kwenders’ concert has been moved to January 20 in the Fourth Stage. Ticketholders can bring their tickets to the new concert date or contact the NAC Box Office 613-947-7000 x 620 for a refund or exchange until September 24 at 9 pm.
