Having dropped their debut joint LP Foreign Ororo last year, that included hits like ‘The Ginger’ and ‘Fake Id’, it seemed only a matter of time before Australia would get another chance to catch afro-infused electro duo Riton & Kah-Lo Down Under. Hitting our shores in a matter of days, we’ll once again be able to bathe in the saucy beats of Riton and smooth flow of Kah-lo that has been turning heads and packing dancelfloors around the globe over the past couple of years.
Boasting a live show that’s so energetic you’ll need a couple of days off work to recover after watching it, the duo will be bringing the heat to Melbourne, Canberra, Launceston, Sydney, Gosford, and Wollongong including appearances at Party In The Paddock and Mountain Sounds. Check out the dates and venues right here, and take a look at our interview with Kah-Lo below:
We met on Twitter and connected in person when he came to NY a few months later.
His art is unique to him. There’s no other Riton.
Definitely. There’s a Nigerian rapper called Falz who just put out an album that speaks on the current political atmosphere. It’s called Moral Instruction, and it’s brilliant.
Personally, I’m really digging Bella Alubo, Mr. Eazi, Burma Boy, Wizkid and Teni.
Not much really, I’m still making music I enjoy. I just have the bragging rights now. Hope to win one someday.
Foreign Ororo literally translates to foreign cooking oil. It’s a funny reference to using foreign oil to cook something that washes up from overseas. Riton’s sound brings something foreign to the Ororo.
I started as a rapper, but I grew to prefer singing because I can’t confidently call myself one when there are so many talented rap lyricists out there. I’m simply a weaver of words.
Ginger is the sauce, the hype, the lituation.
