Mr. Kowalsky

Mr. Kowalsky

Mr. Kowalsky is a Costa Rican musician based in Boston, MA. He formed his first band in 1995 and an enthusiastic reception from the audience inspired him to pursue his music interest seriously. Mr. K has played more than 250 shows to date in Costa Rica, Panamá, England, France, Germany and the U.S. and has opened for well known Latin American bands such as Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Ataque 77 and The Toasters among others. Mr. K has played in many Boston venues including The Middle East Downstairs, The House Of Blues restaurant, Precinct, and Tommy Doyles for a “Clandestino” event, the biggest Latin Indie Rock party in New England. Mr. K has recorded three albums and created music videos for television. His work has been recognized by ACAM, a prestigious Costa Rican music academy. In 2008 he moved to Boston to improve his musical career.

Lyrics and inspiration
Through Mr. K’s lyrics he invites the listener to make a transformation in their lives. He is convinced that the changes of the nation or human destiny depend on the personal evolution of individual minds.

His inspiration is to someday see a sustainable world where society lives in peace with other species and the environment. His biggest battle now is fighting consumerism, big corporations, the ” modern life,” animal extinction and government corruption.

The Live show
Every Mr.Kowalsky show is different. He sings in English and Spanish, and the concept of the show depends on the event, the venue, the country, etc. The show always has some improvisation and Mr. K always interacts with audience inviting them to be part of the show. In addition to his original music, he normally covers bands like The Clash, Toots and Maytals, Los Pericos, The Flaming Lips, and Radiohead among others. Mr K. creates a unique experience for the audience with indie rock and latin rhythms.
