Buena Onda is in the Spotlight

Music FestivalsKevin KennedyComment

Kevin Kennedy iii just released his fourth music video single, Heat of Alabama, from my debut album Umami. The song was recorded in at the Brewery Recording Studio in Brooklyn, NY.  Heat of Alabama is a beachy mix of country story telling and hip hop beats which lyrically take place at the Gulf Shore. 

The music video was shot at the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, AL during the 2015 and 2016 events. I am also an advocate for the Buena Onda company (www.thebuenaonda.com) which uses social enterprise to bring love, community ties, and empowerment to the Wayuu People of Colombia. In the video you can see a large assortment of Wayuu products, plus you get a sneak peek on what it takes to run a merchandise booth at a festival. Buena Onda actually sold at over 9 major music festivals across the USA this year so this video was a perfect opportunity to spotlight the brand.

Firefly Festival

Firefly was a magical festival in Dover, Delaware.   Buena Onda arrived early on the first day and split the booth with our good friend Sultana and her Jewelry Company - Sultana Maria Jewelry.  It was such a happy and joyous experience, especially since we ran the Buena Onda open mic right out of our vending space.  People ended up loving this idea and during the course of the weekend we had over 30 participants.  Check out the videos below to see all of our amazing new friends playing!
