Kae Sun 'Stillness (Live Version)'

Watch Kae Sun play an entrancing version of "Stillness" live for Ontario's Southern Souls.

Kae Sun and his bandmates add warm layers of church organs and guitars to this entrancing live rendition of "Stillness," the closing track from one of the top albums of last year Afriyie.
