This edition will feature Aula, Ayrosh, Abbih and Ythera. Lahani means musical tune in Swahili, and is an acoustic artistic showcase that spotlights emerging amazing acts based in Nairobi and its environs. Artists: Aula is a musical outfit consisting of Kibali, Masika, Lelli, Mostin and Zushi. The name means ‘the best of’, in Swahili, which denotes their desire to transcend their limits and be legendary in their own right. Aula’s songs are abloom anecdotes, traversing human emotions told in a mélange of genres, languages and styles. Their sound is a mix of RnB, Soft Rock, Taarab and Bongo. Kibali is the founder of Lahani. Known as Ayrosh, his moniker is a derivative of his name Irungu. He delivers soothing song-stories, punctuating every release with an anecdote whether his or borrowed from another’s experiences. His songs are well thought out narratives, spelt out note by note. The raspy-voiced, singer-songwriter with a quirky personality, grit and copious amounts of charisma is also the force behind Folk Fusion. Held at 910 in Lavington, the gig is a monthly musical Mugithi showcase that juxtaposes revamped Gikuyu classics, against other genres that glorify indigenous sounds. Abbih, also known as Abbih Nguma is a singer-songwriter born in Mombasa, but made by Nairobi. His sweet-sounding voice and a penchant for Rhumba, has ensured that he is a fan-favorite across the age divide.. His lyrics are worded visions and poignant perspectives, which he delivers effortlessly in lilting Swahili. Abbih is a presenter at the popular magazine show Grapevine. Ythera is known for her smoky, mellismatic voice that wafts in the air like sweet fragrance. Her tone is silky smooth, and her caressing coos induce autonomous sensory meridian responses. Her lyrics are either heavy, or happy-go-lucky as seen in Kinky hair and Kijana. Her voice has a gospel-esque tinge to it, with intoxicating high notes that stun one to silence. Ythera is a seasoned singer who promises to ensconce herself in your heart. We look forward to seeing you all and having a great friday together!
