Maisha Yetu artists’ Discography

AngellIn my tenure as an artist i have embraced different forms of artistic expressions. Underground/Indie is a bedrock of my being. Careful thought processes laid out on engaging,influencing beats. The combination is bliss. It is like the stage, where you can get away with everything so liberating.

Times have changed, life has changed me, in my course of acquiring life skills,my energy points have gone low, mostly because i have not been keen to identify sources of inspiration around  me, so the Hiphop inside me lays dormant.

A first attempt to retrace my steps sees me reliving what i was able to produce and who i worked with. That my inspiration around Akili Blaq or Angell Nthoi is quite amplified perhaps due to the fact that then, i do it for me without having to worry about who will buy the single, its for me!

My inspirations in Kenya have always been to deny myself  and be considerate.  Argon of renaissance,Elohim radii, the abstract poet who loved to arrange his jumbled thought on muddled guitar riffs,distorted drum patterns  where’d he go?

I’d delve into deep thoughts listening to Baaba Maal, Oumou Sangare, Ry cooder, Tony Allen, Kante Manfila, Psychedelic Africa, Orcheastrae Baobab  or some strange compilation of World music by

Abel The Hun

my former producer Abel the hun . Who encouraged my appreciations of various genres from  world music to abstract hiphop namely Cannibal Ox, Nephlym Modulation System, Komatose.

Last but not least i thank Mwafrika in finding it within me to produce under stringent circumstances and appreciate that in whatever form, if there is a message then it has to be articulated, creatively.

For now enjoy what is here,hard smart work with my friends from Kenya,South Africa,Botswana, Sweden and USA. Enjoy!
