About
Benga is undoubtedly Kenyan’s original dance music. Bengatronics, coined by sound producer/DJ Gregg Tendwa, can be a sound, a vibe or a movement. It is essentially a cocktail of folk, dance, electronic and experimental fusion from East Africa. Borrowing heavily from authentic benga styles, it introduces digital influences such as real-time remixing, sampling, and improvisation of arrangements in a live performance setting.

After performances at the Kilifi New Year Festival, the Bengatronics collective showcase some of the heavyweights of Kenyan music scene (the Wakuu) with Makadem, the nyatiti wielding ohanglaman and Kasiva Mutua, the globe-trotting percussionist.
