“Who is Kendino?”, you may ask, the answer may surprise you. Born and raised in the Philippines, Jude Manzano (a.k.a. Kendino) is an artist, singer, songwriter, producer, musician, and a part-time stylist. What he brings to the table is a mesmerizing, smooth LoFi vibe with his songs that can make you either fall in love, or break your heart, or both. Kendino bases his music around his lustful experiences, and whatever makes him at peace.
Manzano has described his inspirations over the years to be the likes of Joji, Childish Gambino, Tobi Lou, and Isaiah Rashad just to name a few.
No stranger to the spotlight, Kendino has played a few shows since his debut in 2019 in venues such as Tramline, The Grand Social, and most recently The Workman's Club. His debut performance was for “Silmiya for Sudan”, where he performed along artists such as EFÉ, UD and Sir Otho. He has also appeared in fellow artist Bobbi Arlo’s music video for her hit single “Berries”. With his upcoming EP, he's ready to take over the summer filled with addicting tunes and can-do attitude. The first single off the EP 'luvletters' is out now on all streaming platforms!
