Feature: Tambua Events and rap musician Mattan on a mission to propel Kenyan Music


German promoter and rap act Mattan has steadily built up his momentum within reliability, competence and originality of his events and concerts across the globe, delving deep into the fusion of events and artist booking.

In a scene blooming with acts who have found a creative avenue within the miscegenation that music provides, Mattan seems to be at the foreground.

The aim is to unite artists from different countries and draw attention to talented Kenyan artists in Europe.

Already during the first 3 – week trip to Kenya numerous contacts were made and some songs were produced.

With two music videos already shot, with the first one being an amorous tune song “Love” (Life) by Jonny Isaya and Mattan.

The foundation for further projects such as albums and tours in cooperation with Kenyan artists has thus been laid.

First of all, rap musician Mattan will go on a merchandise tour with Tambua Events to present his first songs from his new project “Da Zukunst” with Blak-I.

His hypnotic melodies and swirling textures are a nod to his German musical heritage which borrows from different parts of Europe. His influences vary from Brazilian Caetano Veloso, Argentinian Atahualpa Yupanqui and Venezuelan Simón Díaz to Colombian cumbia and Ecuadorian duet Benitez-Valencia, among others.

His latest collaboration with musician Jonny Isaya is a production by Knix and Andah Water witht the video production flag being flown even a notch higher by award winning video director Crizo Mzeyah.
