Kan Wakan Concert
The Getty Center
Part of the Getty's Summer Off the 405 series, Kan Wakan will be performing a free concert at the Getty Center. Show is from 6:00 - 9:00 P.M. No reservations required.
"The Los Angeles-based group Kan Wakan emerged in early 2012, the musical brainchild of composer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Gueorgui I. Linev. The Bulgarian-born musician originally set out to create solely instrumental music inspired by his lifelong passion for classical minimalism, but the involvement of chanteuse Kristianne Bautista and producer/guitarist Peter Potyondy rapidly saw the project grow in both scope and purpose. As the core group built upon a truly variegated palette of influences, common musical themes began to manifest, including an epic but cinematic deep soul approach inspired by such icons as Bill Withers and Nina Simone. For this concert they add strings to compliment their startlingly original and utterly contemporary amalgam of psychedelic soul, electronica, and orchestral pop. LA Weekly recently named Kan Wakan among the "Los Angeles Bands About To Blow Up." Their striking breadth of vision immediately places them among modern pop's most beguiling and inventive new artists." - From the Getty website
