Kawethei Sisters

i keep coming back to this band as i trawl through Youtube. its becoming a daily thing for me to hit these videos up now and its about time i shared them.

There really doesn't seem to be a lot of female-fronted music coming out of Kenya - please feel free to correct me, i'd love to hear more - and i find it pretty refreshing to hear music i love with something a bit different about it.

Anyway, Kawethei Sisters are Kamba music just like our boys Nguuni Lovers Lovers - full of endlessly bouncy cowbells, sweet vocals, relentless kick drums and the usual spiraling Kamba guitars. How great is it to hear women fronting this kind of music?

Get real and get down, for real.
