Kalamari a.k.a Michael Walker is an American rapper and singer -songwriter born in San Antonio, Tx. Inspired by artists like Smino and George Clinton , Kalamari has an eclectic mix of styles on all of his projects . Pair that with dynamic performance and a charismatic stage presence , Kalamari is certainly an artist to watch out for .

Debuting his first EP “Dance to my pain” (2023) with standout songs such as “Trauma Olympics” and “Seen W U” , he quickly put the scene on notice . That attention was kept with the release of his second EP that year “The Bounce is Back” (2023) , showing his smoother southern influences in songs such as “Sway” ft. Chessnotcheckers and “Late Nights On 35” ft Josh Stone.

Kalamari has one plan for SXSW and 2024 in general and that’s to continue providing the most unique music out of the city of San Antonio and to still be ya girl’s favorite appetizer .
