MNspin Artist of the Week: Tufawon
July 13 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Tufawon (2 for 1) is a Dakota/Boricua recording artist, singer/songwriter, and producer from Minneapolis. His name is a representation of his mixed identity, and his music is an honest reflection of his life experiences and personal struggles, his hopes and dreams for the future, spirituality and connectedness to the land, love, and the realities of the world we live in. He has put his life on the line to protect water and our planet. He has recently reinvented his style and sound and you can hear this clearly in his recently released album Until The Sun Comes Up, a full length album of love songs he wrote through his experience with heartbreak. He sang over every song, and produced the entire record. The production style is a blend of dancehall, reggaeton and afrobeats influences. This was a defining moment in Tufawon’s career as he can now call himself a singer/songwriter and not solely a hip hop artist.
