ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MAKADEM
mixing traditional Benga, rap, rock, funky grooves and up tempo Afro Beat in a tasteful danceable blend.

Makadem is Kenya's most prominent Benga artist. His excellent musical sense takes the stage with an amazing presence. Makadem's songs speaks of the fluid nature of modern African culture and demonstrate the fusion that is at the heart of contemporary African identity. He is a specialist of Benga music, arguably the most distinctive sound to have come out of Kenya's 70 years of creating urban music. Benga spread from the shores of Lake Victoria in the west where Makadem was born.
His music is humorous and witty, yet culturally oriented and powerfully tackles social and economic issues that affect people of all walks of life. It's up tempo music full of tradition and with a lot of story telling. His latest Festival Tour in Scandinavia and Canada, thrilled the audience and the press, leading to more festival invitations for 2012.
LIVE
Makadem, one of Kenyas remarkable contemporary artists, is backed by Kenyas best live band. The mix of traditional Benga, rap, rock, funky grooves and up tempo Afro Beat in a tasteful blend, makes any audience to want more. It an unmissable musical meeting, a must for any festival in the world!
