A warm glow emanates from the quirky, lo-fi RnB of KYAMI. The resident of Troy, NY channels her happy thoughts into a velvety smooth strain of alt. RnB that mixes the playfulness of 90s hip hop with the conscious-driven lyricism of neo-soul.
Listening to this melding of styles is like listening to a recording where Joni Mitchell, Kehlani, Ray BLK and Anderson .Paak are all in your ears at once. Channelling her happy thoughts into self-produced beats, KYAMI’s music snaps, crackles and pops as she folds nostalgia in with a contemporary yearning for truth – her truth – to be heard.
