“Bringer of deep, hynotic and indigenous Afro-house grooves, a vehicle to a musically trance-laden spiritual realm” – that’s how Stephen Njeru Wambugu, popularly known as Saint Evo, describes himself.
The talented young Kenyan producer and DJ is on a mission to shake up Kenya’s music scene and take it to the world. With a host of impressive collaborations already under his belt and a debut album in the pipeline, few would bet against him.
His music is unique in its own aspectas it is a new genre that is a fusion of Eat African drum rhythms and sounds he calls Equatorial House.
Equatorial House is laced with a house music beat of ‘four-to-the-floor’ kick, enmeshed with erratic melodic sounds from the Equatorial region. However, it needs to be noted that this sound is still in evolution. In time to come, it will have matured and fully blossomed.
This concert is part of a series of events organised in cooperation between Music in Africa and Goethe-Institut Kenya. Music in Africa is an information and exchange web portal dedicated to the African music sector. The portal responds to the need for reliable information and networking between collaboration among artists on an international level, as well as to enhance awareness of African music scenes.
