ARTIST PROFILE

Muntu Valdo

Cameroon born singer, songwriter, guitarist and harmonica player now based in London. His new album “The One And The Many” (2011) features the use of live looping and other musical technology to develop a remarkably full on multi layered and textured sound. Valdo’s remarkable one man live shows see him deploying these same techniques in live performance.
