Kimathi Moore was born in Paris, France in 1966 amidst a multicultural environment where his parents were strongly involved in music, social awareness, art, writing and philosophy. It is within this cultural environment that Kimathi naturally developed a passion for the arts and creative expression. An experimental electronic artist and percussionist by trade, Kima’s music is strongly inspired by paintings (Impressionism, Surrealism, Magic Realism), mixed media art and his childhood themes. Within Kima’s music there are countless influences ranging from Free Jazz, Modern Classical, West and East African music, Asian and experimental electronic music. The overarching theme in his music deals with his private inner worlds – for that reason he considers his pieces to be more like sound “paintings”.
