Kae Sun ‘Afriyie’

kae-sun-afriyie

Afriyie, the sophomore effort from Ghanaian/Canadian songwriter Kae Sun, cycles through beautifully-crafted modern pop songs with remnants of folk, soul and electronic influences. The album, produced by Kae Sun and Science!, features standouts like the slow-burning  “Ship And The Globe” and the jolting, staccato-riffed “When The Pot.” Afriyie is available on iTunes and URBNET.
