Kiko Bun is a reggae artist based in London. Kiko has stored London’s splattering of styles in his musical DNA ever since he was young. Growing up in North London, his first musical awakening was classical, before turning to salsa, hip hop and then reggae. He has worked in a cross section of reggae, dancehall, soul, vintage R&B, and hip-hop, creating an infectious and vibrant sound. He is signed to Island Records.
