With all of the stars in the world, there are very few that shine as bright as Kande. Born in Abidjan, raised in Paris/France, Kande moved in New York at the age of 15, to pursue his music career. With his rich cultural background that includes his mother, a native of Ivory Coast, and his father a French and Guinean descent, Kande will not only impress each and every person who listens to his music, but will inspire them as well. Kande grew up listening to World/R&B/and Pop music, he began singing around the age of 7, and started touring the world, with his uncles Mory Kante, and Salif Keita,(The kings of ''World music'') at the age of 11. After years of touring and learning from them, Kande has acquired all elements of a true, and original artist.
