Catch Kuf Knotz’s new collaborative project with Christine Elise at Johnny Brenda’s later this month
Philly native Kuf Knotz has a new project in the works. Paired with classically trained harpist Christine Elise and backed by the Trap Rabbit band, it may seem like an unlikely combination, but their music — right now all we have are some live concert videos, but there’s an album on the way — proves that the joined musical forces are onto something good. Currently on tour, they’ll play Johnny Brenda’s for the first time on August 28, opening for Liniker e os Caramelows.
All the way from Brazil, this will be the first-ever Philadelphia show for headliners Liniker e os Caramelows; the R&B- and soul-influenced group rocketed to international success when they released their first EP on YouTube in 2015. Also in the lineup is theBrazilian-inspired but Philadelphia-based jazz band Ensemble Novo.
