Pierre Kwenders

Montreal, Quebec

Pierre Kwenders is a Montreal artist with Congolese origins. Following his encounter with Nom de Plume, producer and member of the group Radio Radio, Pierre Kwenders was able to draw influences from various musical styles including Soul and Electro, but above all from Congolese Rumba, in order to present his two EP’s “Whisky & Tea” and “African Dream”, often described as ”world 2.0”. Within dIFa (doing it for art), a rap-electro-soul collective with Nom de Plume and Poncho French, Pierre Kwenders stands out for his singing in Lingala (a Congolese language). Resulting from an unconventional cultural métissage, his first EP “Whisky & Tea” (produced by Nom de Plume) reveals his artistic path.
