Kaito Winse is the perfect example of a citizen of our global world, in which we are all connected by networks, and rich in millennial traditions alive and in motion.
He comes from a Burkina Faso griot music family. From an early age he was raised in the traditions of his family in the village of Lankoué, Sourou region in the north of Burkina Faso. He is now living in Brussels, Belgium. He is the spokesperson for a singular and complex poetic universe. His powerful and bewitching voice recalls the intensity of opera technique and invites you to listen to messages that carry ancestral truths. Kaito plays multiple instruments ranging from vocals to the calabash, including the mouth bow, kora and tama. He invokes the different popular, praising or festive rhythms through his instruments. His music is a unique experience where musical codes shatter to find themselves at the crossroads of traditional, learned and popular music.
Kaito has released his debut album via Rebel Up Records on October 2, 2020 on which he plays all the instruments as a support to his voice.
“Everything here exudes authenticity and sincerity.” Larsen
Since he first travelled to Belgium, Kaito met various musicians of the underground and experimental scene and tried new radical experiences, as few videos show on this website. This work is currently in progress. Get in touch if you're daring something unknown.
