Simplified Soul JAM is a reunion of sorts celebrating the return of 2 of the vocalists (Mumala and Angie) who have been away for further studies. It is also a celebration of sisterhood, friendship, life, love and music. What they hope to achieve is an intimate, fun-filled evening full of incredible music and stories that shall leave the audience feeling warm,fuzzy and yummy inside.
Nairobi has some pretty amazing musicians and these 3 ladies are among them. 3 reasons why you should attend this concert.
1. June Gachui has been and continues to be an avid performing artiste at various entertainment venues around Nairobi. She is working on her debut album project expected to be released the December. A soulful, engaging and bubbly personality with an inimitable voice.
June says that as part of the mentorship that she does for young female musicians, she realized that they need expose to shine in every role not just vocally but also as instrumentalists, a role that is majorly occupied by male musicians. She is passionate about creating a platform where musicians can shine not because of their gender but because they are great musicians.
2. Angie Gachui is an awesome vocalist, Angie is so excited to be back on stage in Nairobi after 2 years away studying in New York.
3. Mumala Maloba is a 22 year old singer-songwriter who continues to cause a stir within the crop of young musicians in Nairobi. She recently released her latest single ‘Paper Chasing‘ feat Kibera success kid Octopizzo. Currently studying Law at Middlesex University, Mumala is also definitely one of the female vocalists to look out for in the coming months.
Their All Star Band will feature up and coming musicians such as ( Olive Karmen on Drums, Tindi Muasa on Keys, Ivy Alexander on Guitar and Liz Imbogo on Bass) and as well as some established ones such as Kasiva on Percussions.
