When listening to Kali Uchis we have a renewed certainty that pop music can still
surprise and thrill us. Singer, songwriter, producer and director of her own video-clips
Kali shows nothing stands in the way of her artistic spirit. She grew up in Virginia, US,
and began to feed her musical talent early on as she learned to play saxophone and
piano in her teenage years. In 2012 she released her first mixtape Drunken Babble.
Over the next few months her fame sky-rocketed with singles such as “Know What I
Want”, “Lottery” and collaborations with well-known names like Snoop Dogg, Tyler,
The Creator and Major Lazer. Three years later, in 2015, she released her first EP, Por
Vida, produced by Diplo, Kaytranada and Tyler. Kali is the type of artist who transcends
the usual moulds. Characterised by influences from R&B, reggae and even jazz, Kali can
be considered a disruptive pop musician. In 2017 she was nominated for a Grammy
award in the Best R&B Performance category for “Get You”, in collaboration with
Daniel Ceasar as well as for a Latin Grammy award in the Record of the Year category
for “El Ratico”, in collaboration with Juanes. Following this consolidation process to
reach a more mature artistic language Kali felt ready to release her debut album
Isolation in 2018. The album was critically acclaimed (rated 8.6 by Pitchfork; five stars
by NME; four stars by Rolling Stone, Q and The Independent) and captivated the public
with singles “Tyrant”, in collaboration with Jorga Smith, “Nuestro Planeta”, featuring
Reykon, and “After the Storm”, with Tyler, The Creator and Bootsy Collins.
Next summer one more star will land in Meco: Kali Uchis performs on 18 th July at
Super Bock Super Rock Super Bock Stage
