Nairobi Live @ Tree House presents Winyo

Entrance: Free

Winyo is a singer and songwriter of great sensitivity and he also plays the guitar, backed by his 4 piece band of accomplished musicians.
Winyo derives his music and musical strength from his forefathers whose music was rich in melody and traditional rhythmic patterns. His musical style ranges from traditional Luo melodies infused with witty story lines, afro fusion and afro jazz, to a contemporary interpretation of Benga, transformed into an authentic acoustic sound. His powerful yet mellow vocals are the icing on the cake that makes listening to Winyo, an almost heavenly experience.
Winyo sings in his paternal language of Dholuo, Swahili and English. His stories address a myriad of social issues ranging from the plight of homeless children to courtship and love stories.
A special edition of Winyo’s debut CD as a solo artist titled Benga Blues, was released in Europe as an EP while he was on a tour that saw him perform in Germany, Italy, Romania, and France. The CD was well received and will be officially launched in Kenya and internationally in 2013.
