Michel Ongaro is one of the best known singers and songwriters in Kenya. Ever since he was a young child he had a strong interest in music. Influenced by African rhythms, Jazz as well as Latin and classical music, he gradually became a multi-instrumentalist and started to compose his own music pieces. He produced his first album in collaboration with the German band The Embassadors.
Since then Michel Ongaro never stopped engaging himself in music. GI are proud to announce that the release concert for his new album will be held at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi. The album’s title is Mazoea, which in English means “habit”.
The music is largely acoustic, a fusion of Kenyan rhythms such as chakacha and bengaamong others, creating a unique sound, which you are going to experience at the concert.
