Muthoni drummer queen is at it yet again with her artistic creations that always bring the city to a standstill. This time on she launched her very much anticipated album SHE. The launch went down at the classy and glamourous Alchemist Bar in Westlands. She says that the album was supposed to be launched last year but due to the election frenzy, she had to push it to this year. This finally brought satisfaction to her fans who were really looking forward for the album.
The album is a true definition of female empowerment that has been well crafted with a little bit of Swiss perfection and Kenyan taste. Muthoni says that the concept of the album has been inspired by her career journey ever since the days she used to perform at the Dass in Westlands, to creating her own stage at the Blankets and Wines and the now recent concept of African Nouveau.
She now boasts of international recognition especially with her various projects that are really getting appraisal in Europe especially Switzerland. This drove her to create an album that is all about women empowerment and also reflect on her life experiences. “It’s my lens of life,” Muthoni says.
The choreography, the lighting, the costumes and the music was just mind blowing. Just like the art in the cover photos that were out before the album release, the launch too was artistically designed to perfection. With no collaborations scheduled for any time soon, Muthoni has planned for shows in Kenya, France, Switzerland and Mauritius. Let’s enjoy the album and keep on feeling the MDQ vibe.
