According to a bio on her website, Muthoni Ndonga has in previous lives been a polar bear, a Chinese dumpling maker and a French general, among many other things.
Today, however, the Nairobi-based artist is most commonly known under her rapper-pseudonym “The Drummer Queen” and together with two hip-hop producers; the queen is scheduled to take on Switzerland’s largest open-air festival, Paléo, this summer.
“The collaboration…is the fruit of a fortuitous encounter,” reads an explanation to Muthoni’s collaboration with two Swiss producers known as GR! and Hook. “Introduced by a mutual friend, they rapidly formed a bond based on artistic alchemy.”
Acclaimed for her guest appearance on Wyclef Jean’s dance-floor killer “Nai Ni Ya Who?” as well as for original compositions like “Feelin’ It,” Muthoni will hit Paléo’s stage on July 26. And she will be rocking your world with newly produced tracks like “This One” and “Game Changers.”
Tickets for the festival go on sale on April 22. In the meantime, check out her new collaboration, entitled “MDQ,” on Bandcamp.
