My name is Ian Kamau; I am an artist. I believe that my ability to create and communicate is intimately tied to my purpose in life although I am unsure of exactly how.
I was born and raised in Toronto to Trinidadian parents who immigrated to North America in 1970. My parents are documentary filmmakers. I grew up around ideas, information and art.
Making music has taken me around the world; it has opened doors to experiences I never dreamed I would have and has put me in the position to have conversations with a diversity of dynamic, interesting individuals.
I believe in community. My creative life extends to my work in arts-based community projects. That side of my life has always run parallel to my artistic life.
I am an artist who wants to continue to be creative and support others in being creative while finding my purpose.
