Traditional Kenyan Luo Musicians Joseph Nyamungu and Charles Owoko collaborate with Brittish electronica sounds led by keyboardist Jesse Hackett in the form of Owiny Sigoma. The band performed at Treehouse last month to a diverse crowd of Kenyans and expats. According to their FB page:
The band draws on a broad spectrum of African influences, from Fela Kuti and Tony Allen to the likes of Thomas Mapfumo and Oumou Sangare.
I was thoroughly impressed with their innovative and experimental approach to music. Check out their music at these sites:
