James Kakande

Writer of songs, poems …
& an organic bullshit dinner table philosopher.

I wasn´t me, who did it. It was me!

A Journey With An Ever Changing Direction

James Kakande has always been way too curious to stay in any one place for long. Driven by an irresistible urge, his travels have led to many towns and many cafes where he has sat for hours watching people go by, living in his natural state of reflection. This together with his influences of poetry and comedy has played a major role in his inspiration.

“Soulful Music with a Melancholic Twist”, is how he describes his style. Uniting Soul, Reggae, Jazz, interjecting rap sequences and gentle poetry – Kakande arranges it all into his own unique mix.

Although James’ main instruments are his voice, piano, guitar and bass, he is always accompanied by a full band, in his head. He incorporates saxophone, trumpet and trombone in his arrangements, adds rhythm on percussion or drums and doesn’t shy away from elements of electronic to accompany his exceptional lyrics. It is this mixture that makes his music so inimitable and fascinating.

His debut album “My Little Red Bag”, first introduced us to James’ globetrotting perspective back in 2006 with the first single to be released from the album “You You You” climbing to #1 on the Italian Singles Chart.

His motivation, however, isn’t fame and unimpressed by any attention gained, he is happiest, performing in small clubs, intimate music festivals, or even in a park somewhere…
