Kool Bario is a label, artist management, booking agency and events business based in Cairns, Australia.
The idea was born in 2012 when Cam Kennedy, a seasoned local promoter (300 + events) and DJ, decided to expand his love of music to include managing artists and building a brand that would be recognised and respected around the world.
Cam wanted to develop a place where new and emerging artists would be guided and supported to reach their audience - a place that would help them open new doors so others can appreciate their musical talent!
It has always been about the music for Cam and he knows there are many others out there that feel the same way. He created Kool Bario to build a vibrant, supportive and economically feasible way to show the world the passion he and his artists have for their music!
The focus at Kool Bario is on those with strong roots in hip hop, house, reggae and funk. Basically anything with a little soul.
Cam has in the past worked with the likes of Bliss n Eso, Marc Romboy, The Middle East, Claude Vonstroke, Ash Grunwald, Infected Mushroom, Xzibit and most recently Jess Harlen and Onelove.
