Album Notes
Kunle Ayo, probably Africa’s most celebrated guitarists, has earned several musical accolades, even comparisons with giants of the contemporary school like George Benson, Earl Klugh and locally based Jimmy Dludlu. This dazzling live performer, returns wit...h his 5th album “Best of Both Worlds”, pulling at the heartstrings of fans around the world. Promising to be soulful, jazzy, cheerful, and funky. Every show Kunle Ayo leaves his fans inspired and full of positive energy. Born of Yoruba parents in Lagos, Nigeria, his parents clearly knew a star was born, writing his destiny in the stars by naming him Kunle loosely translated “abundance” in his native Yoruba tongue. Literally “Kun” means “to fill” and “le” stands for “house”. In a way perhaps he was destined to literally fill houses with beautiful music. Kunle Ayo recalls how as a youngster he always had and affinity to play, starting with drums and thumb piano and later graduating to guitar at the tender age of 20. By age 28 Kunle Ayo was recording and playing with some of Nigeria’s internationally respected artists, including Chief Ebenezer Obey, Kayode Olajide and the enigmatic Lagbaja (The Masked One) with whom he toured Europe, North Africa and South America. “My philosophy on live entertainment is that I don’t play for the people but I play with the people.” Since his trek to the south in 2002, Kunle Ayo has performed and recorded with some of the country's best artists - notably the late Jabu Khanyile and International artists such as, Kirk Whalum, Al Jarreau and Jonathan Butler. In 2005 Kunle Ayo expanded on his empire, and started his own company, K Cool Productions, and has produced music for talented acts like MXO and Simphiwe Dana to name a few. As one of the most sought after performers Kunle Ayo has participated in a number of jazz concerts, notably the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz International Jazz Festival, and the Cape Town International Jazz Festival
