About Tour

Over the past year, Mwalimu Gregg Tendwa worked on a full-length studio album together with UMOJA DJs from Amsterdam and various artists from across the Benga Belt of Kenya.

This album brings forth extremely nuanced cross-generational and inter-tribal conversations from Kisumu to Kilifi, featuring original compositions by Boaz Jagingo, Missing Rotich, Msupa S Queen John ‘Kakee’ Kithikii Musyoki Mutua Poet and Abakisimba Troupe. The album is grounded by the prowess of Udulele John and Michel Ongaro on the guitars, Oduor Bernard Kidum on the drums and bengatronics on the DJ decks.

Guest Artists: Ken wa Maria & Francis Danger of the Kakai Kilonzo & Kilimambogo Brothers fame. Indeed, this night is for the books, join us in opening a fresh page in the history of Benga Music in Kenya.
