Concert – Muziki wa Kenya: Ma3, Nov 12 2011 @ Goethe-Institut
Muziki wa Kenya presents: Ma3 @ GOETHE-INSTITUT
Maendeleo House, Monrovia Street, Nairobi
Saturday 12th November 2011 – 6 PM
Ma3 (Maa-Three) is a 6-piece, quirky Afro Pop band from Nairobi that borrows its name from the inescapable public transport mini-vans that dot cities in Kenya and all over Africa.
Ma3 is made up of Kenya’s most in-demand drummer Matthayo, young electric guitar prodigy Kato, Karanja on Bass, Kenya’s only intellectual property lawyer with a prolific music career Karimi on acoustic guitar, the magical Nanjira as the band’s vocalist/front “man” and Tim Rimbui, one of East-Africa’s leading music producers – on the keyboards.
In the two short years that Ma3 has been in existence, the band has headlined two of the biggest festivals to grace Nairobi, i.e. the Spread the Love Festival with Kirk Franklin and Nairobi Kinanda Arts Festival featuring Freshly Ground, Kwani Litfest and Shukas N juice Concert.
Ma3’s sound is that of young, contemporary, urban Africa; mixing soulful English/Swahili lyrics with spell binding guitar riffs built on a solid rhythm section. Ma3’s music is definitely up your alley.
