Connan Mockasin will perform in Ukraine for the first time - meet the youngest music genius in New Zealand

Its warm, soft cat voice and original guitar style in a heap with a charming quiver give such an effect that it is impossible to pass by. That's why radiohead quickly entered Radiohead, James Blake, Charlotte Gensbur, Tyler, The Creator, Mc Demarco, Beck, MGMT and others. Now your turn.

Conan grew up in a small seaside town in New Zealand where he recorded his first album "Forever Dolphin Love" (2010) - a psychedelic story about a man who fell in love with a melancholic dolphin. The guy did not want to show his music to anyone at all, but my mother made it. With the speed of the Pacific waves, cooperation proposals from all over the world began to emerge, and two years later, Conan Mocasin has already toured Australia and New Zealand along with Radiohead.
The second album "Caramel" (2013) is recorded in a Tokyo hotel room. This is an ironically-sexy soap opera in rhythm and blues rhythms and a thick guitar pouch. The Guardian described the release as "a trident mutated soul," comparing Barry Whitta with an acid or a romantic comedy whose action unfolds on Mars. At this stage, Moccasin became a New Zealand treasure, and a miracle began to happen on his concerts - then Mc Demarco in a whiskey wig will be on the back vocals, then James Blake joins the jam.
In 2018, Conan Mocasin presented the third album "Jassbusters" and related Bostyn n 'Dobsyn's amateur film "about the group of musical teachers-losers. The artist began to invent this story with his friends at school so that it flourished more than 20 years later.
For the smeared guitar parties of Conan, you will not say that he admired Jimi Hendrix. However, when you listen, especially live, you understand: the musician has invented his own style, sensual, sophisticated, on which he instantly recognizes.
Conan now lives in Tokyo with partner and model Playboy Hiromi Oshima and gives intimate, full of goodness and love concerts around the world, giving preference to the picturesque locations - the roof of the house in Auckland, the old cinema in Berlin, the botanical garden in Vilnius, and now the South Coast of Kiev .

The concert is timed to the 5th anniversary of the Comma musical edition. Each year the editorial office celebrates the anniversary of a special event, often in partnership with local promoters. Previously, it was the festival of new music on Kontraktova Ploscha, the first Ukrainian concert of Warhaus, the stage debut of the Kiev artist Monoconda, and now - the evening with one of the most interesting musical heroes of our time.
