Kiko Bun

London

Name, Where are you from?
My name is Kiko Bun, born and raised in North West London and originally half Panamanian, half Italian. 

What do you do?
I am a reggae musician. 

Describe your style in three words?
My style is rugged, neat, bold. 

How should your music be listened to?
I think my music should be listened to in the sun or when getting ready to go out or at a house party or a dance. 

What do you miss about home when you’re on tour?
When I'm on tour, the thing I miss about home the most would have to be my mum and her cooking! 

What British music icons inspire your sound today? 
Soweto Kinch - he played in my school as part of a jazz week or something and I was immediately hooked. He is a saxophone player and fuses hip hop with jazz.
Harry Love - a hip hop producer from England that makes beats for the likes of Tommy Evans, Black The Ripper and such. Very musical style of sampling and also quite jazzy. 
UB 40 - the notorious Red Red Wine was on a lot when I was growing up and is still a reggae anthem in my eyes.
