DURAMANEY KAMARA

COMPOSER

Duramaney Kamara was born into a family of afro-jazz musicians, becoming infatuated with instruments, live music and production from a young age. His childhood home was filled with reggae, jazz and afro-beat, which continue to influence his composition and music production to this day.

As a child Duramaney performed with his parents in gigs around London, developing a multi-disciplinary talent for playing instruments, his favourite being the trumpet. At 6 years old he began writing and producing songs on GarageBand and as a teenager was invited to create music in professional studios for artists around London.

Duramaney, aka ‘D L K’ is also a recording artist and producer who releases music under his indie label ‘Breaking Bread & Boundaries’, founded in 2018. He released his debut EP, ‘F*ck It Let’s Move’ in 2019, which peaked at #1 in the UK iTunes pre-order charts. He most recently co-produced two tracks on Mostack’s latest album, ‘High Street Kid 2’ which made it into the UK Top 40. D L K is set to release more of his own music.

Duramaney is also an actor. He had his stage debut in 2016 at the Almeida in Leo Butler’s Boy and had his screen debut in 2018 in Idris Elba’s feature film ‘Yardie’. He continues to work as an actor alongside composition and music production.
