Kosmopolites is a songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist based in the musical melting pot that is Melbourne, Australia. He teamed up with the sorely missed Heath King (songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist) to produce the tracks for his first release.
Kosmopolites takes his name from a story about the Ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes of Sinope. When asked where he came from, Diogenes replied, "I am a citizen of the world (kosmopolites)". Like Diogenes, Kosmopolites sees himself as a member of a global artistic, moral and political community. This is reflected in his music, which draws on many musical cultures and traditions, and which often has an ethical or political bent.
He is unclassified by genre overall because no single classification seems to fit even a fraction of his pieces.
