The Ungenerated

Kevin Johansen is a different artist. With its own style that mixes different musical genres, its sounds are unique. Like him.


Sometimes labels don't work. Trying to fit something or someone into a category loses its meaning when categories don't fit what we want to define. If someone had to pigeonhole Kevin Johansen's musical style, they would be faced with a big dilemma. Because Kevin is — as he defines himself — a disgenerated.

The sounds of Kevin train some cumbia, some folklore, some popular Latin American music. A little pop, rock and — why not— tango. Yes, all that, but mixed and with an unexpected end result. As if that were not enough, the musician sings in Spanish and English, sometimes within the same track. Trying to define Kevin Johansen is, then, an impossible task. And, moreover, unnecessary .

Kevin Johansen is 100% Argentine, but was born in Alaska, USA. As an Argentine mother and an American father, he lived as a boy in different American cities. When he was about 12 years old, they moved to Buenos Aires, although they also passed through Montevideo (Uruguay) for a while. From 1990, Kevin lived in New York, until he finally returned to Argentina in 2000. Today he lives in the neighborhood of Colegiales, where he can be seen walking like another neighbor.

It is that, despite his career and success, Kevin Johansen is still a niche artist . Everyone knows him, but he doesn't lose his closeness to his audience or his humility. That same atmosphere is breathed in his concerts, where people go up to dance on stage and he goes down to take the audience out to dance. When Kevin plays, it's like he's playing a friend.

Because, to be a star, you don't have to believe in heaven.
