According to the Oxford Dictionary, the definition of unique is “being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else.” And it undoubtedly the most appropriate word to describe urban folk extraordinaire Tetu Shani. He, in turn, describes this genre of music as a blend of indie rock, Afro-pop and folkloric rhythms from Kenya. He was nominated for East African Male Musician of the year in 2016 at the Kenya Buzz Awards and is also a Global Music Award winner, winning silver for outstanding achievement at the 2017 awards.
It is rare to find a musician so in touch with their roots, especially when everyone is looking to coin the latest catchphrase to complete that ‘hit song.’ Tetu Shani is not swayed by any of that, he just wants to make music that warms your heart.
