Kenyan Afrocentric songbird Nina Ogot will be launching her third abum titled ‘Dala’, which means ‘home’ in her mother tongue dholuo, with a series of live performances from the 5th to the 12th September in Nairobi – Kenya.
In this upcoming album, the musician fuses her Kenyan roots into a mordern upbeat African and Western sound. Having gained insight and inspiration from the older generation of musical gurus hailing from different parts of the African continent like Mzee Ngala (Kenya), Joseph Kabasele (Congo), Fela Kuti (Nigeria), Manu Dibango (Cameroun)…and many others, this record promises its audience a rich, diverse and colourful musical palette.
The musical collaboration with her German collegues and band members begun in Dec 2018 when The Treasures of Kenya Trust invited Nina Ogot to Cologne, Germany to brace their event dubbed Jambo day as a musical cultural ambassador for Kenya. A 15 piece band which comprises of a full horn section, a rhythm section, keys, guitars and back-up vocalists was put together for the event and thanks to the excellent musical chemistry, in April 2019 Nina Ogot recorded her third album ‘Dala’ with her new band in Germany.
The ‘Dala’ Album is also scheduled to be launched this November 2019 in Germany.
