Face of the Week – Yong Buddha

Born in Lagos but raised in Ireland, Caleb Kunie has been through a number of musical incarnations – from rapping as Lyrical Kingpin at the age of ten to adventures in electronic sounds of When I Was 17. It’s as Yong Buddha that he has found his voice though, picking up an acoustic guitar and adopting a more soulful, folk tinged persona. Assembling a band of like minded individuals, welcome yet another vital new voice to the domestic scene. See him play the late show at Whelans tonight with fellow State Face Simi Crowns.
