An acoustic guitarist and singer/songwriter, Kunle’s folk and soul music bridges contemporary styles with roots in West African rhythms and stories.

Nigerian-born and currently based in Toronto, Kunle brings together his rich vocals, guitar tapping, harmonica and talking drum to take audiences into what he terms ‘music with no boundaries‘. Grounded in traditions of oral history, Kunle’s music often starts from a West African riddle or proverb and then pulls rhythms and sounds from different cultures to tell a story.




Toronto Live Off The Floor! is a live performance series presented by CJRU 1280AM.

Between now and September 2020, we’ll be featuring a live streamed performance every other Wednesday afternoon, along with an in-depth live streamed interview every other Monday afternoon, done with different emerging music artists based in Toronto and the surrounding area.

The purpose of this series is to connect our audience with local artists of different genres and styles – who come from and identify with different communities that help make Toronto the city that it is, most especially within its music scene. Within that, this series also aims to place an emphasis on musicians who are students at Ryerson University.

This series is funded and made possible by the Community Radio Fund of Canada.
