“Of peanuts and screws”, an audio walk with Njo Kong Kie

January 27, 2021

Njo Kong Kie takes a walk through the streets of Toronto, and invites you to share his journey in a place of your own choosing. The musical accompaniment is drawn from the artist’s own Picnic in the Cemetery,and it’s a delight for the ears. Interspersed with the melodic interludes are Kong Kie’s musings on ideology, interpersonal connections, Kung-Fu flicks, ambition, and more, including the true cost of our smartphones. 

In 2021, Kong Kie brought his concert version of the beautiful, yet tragic I swallowed a moon made of iron to PuSh.
