Toro y Moi
When: Jan 12
Where: Hidden Agenda, Ngau Tau Kok
What? Playing host to the critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Toro y Moi, Hidden Agenda is the place to be this Tuesday. Moving away from popular music whether that be hip-hop and R&B or electronic, Toro y Moi relishes in his absolute uniqueness. Hailing from a South Carolina home, Chazwick Bradley Bundick (as he is known offstage) began identifying with the chill wave movement of 2010 among numerous other genres from indie pop to electronic and synth pop as well. With his multi-lingual stage name (meaning literally ‘toro’ – bull and ‘moi’ – me) Toro y Moi is the multi-rhymic, hugely diverse artist/producer revolutionising the way we listen to music today.
