Kid Hyena - A Musical Culture Clash
Breaking boundaries of genre with four to the floor tech rhythms, fiery percussion & live tap dance beats set against a backdrop of uplifting and finely crafted songs of positivity & resistance, Kid Hyena bring their self styled 'Alt Hop' show to you.
Founded on the backstreets of Barcelona and influenced by old school folk & hip hop sounds, alternative rock, experimental and dance music, the band's life began with an exploratory period of intensive recording where they released three albums over two and a half years. Some songs went on to be featured on Spanish & UK radio.
All the albums can now be sourced via their independent label 'Planet Road Records'.
In September 2021 the duo purchased an old motorhome and sought to put the pandemic behind them by hitting the road to do what they love the most.
Since then they have played countless shows here, there & everywhere including the Isle of Wight & Glastonbury festivals.
Now based in the UK they've got several projects currently on the go including the evolving percussive 'Alt - Hop' sounds of their unique live show, a musical graphic novel and new material being recorded - as ever the band cease to remain static and continue to look for new innovative ways forward with their music.

Mr Kid (Matt Kemp) - Percussion, Vocals, Samples & Guitar.
Miss Hyena (Maria Moreno) - Tap Dance Beats, Synth, Melodica, Vocals & Percussion.
