Summer By The River: Kaidi Akinnibi

240601 Kaidi Akinnibi Pic 2

From his time in popular Post-punk outfit ‘Black Midi’ and working with many of the finest groups in the UK jazz scene - Kokoroko and Mercury prize winners Ezra Collective amongst them - while also creating and playing with Tom Misch, Wizkid, Dave and more, it’s no wonder Kaidi Akinnibi’s own music is so precise and eclectic.

Kaidi Akinnibi grew up in South London. Developing alongside many other musical artists - many hailing from Tomorrows Warriors and the Windmill - his own rare style blends Shoe-gaze Rock, Punk-Jazz, and Indie music via his distinct warm vocals and powerful, high energy Saxophone sounds.

2023 saw Kaidi’s first impact on the scene, his live recording ‘Real Enough’ recorded before his sold out show at the Dalston Curve garden, and intimate session in the 5db canteen being notable highlights.

His debut album ‘Goodbye’ is due to be released this winter.
