"Kankam's voice is memorable for its warmth and carefree soulfulness."
“What you'll remember most is that voice — soulful and light, powerful and tender.”
"His voice has a presence that commands your attention, while he draws from stories of his life."
“Kwesi Kankam, singing a Dave Matthews/John Mayer-inspired set, beat out three other finalists who like him had won weekly preliminary contests at Mezza Luna Sports Bar and Grill in Allentown. Kankam won the third week of preliminaries. Playing alone on an acoustic guitar, standing at a microphone to sing, Kankam did a nine-song set. Both his guitar playing and singing were exceptional, and he won the nod of a four-judge panel before more an audience of than 50 people. ”
