Funny that am in Mombasa making music! the irony of it all is that there is a Finnish song called Mombasa that actually doesn’t visually portray the vibrancy and love culture of this city.
Can show you around my city? Yes, of course, now you know that this city has grown me. Just some bit of History maybe? well Mombasa is a coastal city of Kenya along the Indian Ocean, actually the countries oldest and second largest city after Nairobi
its spiced up with a mixture of cultures tracing back from Arabic origin, tourists from Europe especially Italy, among other countries, locals, Indians, Americans actually everyone is represented here.
Music here has a lot of Arabic influence, coastal taarab and a lot of nice mellow rhythms, this is where I developed my own music genre, this is where it all started. I came home to work with other experts on what I started, I am currently working in studio with Shirko Media an amazing music label, the producer and owner is a multi talented young man.
During my spare time, am either on the beach, out hiking or just sleeping since I don’t get to sleep well as I work a lot at night. Working with women and filming documentaries about women issues.
Comparing our way of studying to Finland, we are actually more into theory, understanding something completely then practicing after, My university is Finland is more of Hands on, with all these together, its a Win for me.
Talking about culture, Mombasa people and loving , caring and gentle.
Welcome to Mombasa.
