      Batuki Music Society
      presents KAE SUN launching live: Ship and The Globe and other tracks off the forthcoming release AFRIYIE at the Rivoli on Thursday March 14, 2013.


      AFRIYIE opening: Ayo Leilani and Jamilah (Pan Fried Afrika)


      Ghana-born, Toronto-based musician-songwriter Kae Sun launches live in
      concert the first single "Ship and The Globe" from his next full-length
      album AFRIYIE, produced by Kae Sun and Science!, and set for release
      mid-year.

      Kae’s latest work
      explores themes of spiritual growth, fearless exploration, and
      vulnerability. As the artist explains, "the way I came to music was part
      of a bigger search. Exploration and fearless expression was a part of a
      spiritual journey for me and continues to be. It was never initially
      about a career or a certain style or anything like that. It was about
      easing anxiety and being closer to God. In that sense I'm always
      creating to satisfy that part of me. The songs on this record are deeply
      personal for that very reason."

      This new effort by the
      singer-songwriter builds on the success of his previous releases. For
      his 2011 EP Outside the Barcode, Kae Sun was inspired by the return to
      his native homeland Ghana. After nine years of living in Canada, he
      found a renewed drive for creating the raw and non-commoditized artistic
      experiences that shaped his passion for music.
      2009’s Lion on a
      Leash, the well-received LP that landed on the iTunes 2009 Rewind List
      and earned esteemed reviews from Exclaim, The Montreal Gazette,
      Okayafrica, as well as gaining recognition on many critics' lists for
      top indie release of the year. The success of Kae’s work has led him to
      play venues and festivals across Canada, UK, Dubai and Ghana.
