Sultry voiced singer Serro finally dropped her debut album titled Kuwe and it is fire! With songs such as Kasyoki Wa Mitumba, Ya Dunia, and Aheri, this album is definitely one to give a try. The 14-track album is a showcase of Serro’s musical versatility as it has songs from multiple genres i.e Neo-soul in Aheri, Okello, Kuwe,and Asante, Reggae in Hey Baby, Benga sounds in Kasyoki Wa Mitumba, Pop in Ya Dunia and Niiuradukania, Salsa in Mtumwa and Jazzy elements in Rongai.
The songs which are sang in various languages: Luo, Kikuyu, Giriama, Swahili, Zulu, and English are a testament to Serro’s growth in music since her debut single Rongai which was released in 2016. Her lyrics tell her stories honestly through her beautiful voice and enable the listeners to connect with her. She manages to effortlessly convey the emotions in all her songs.
Kuwe which is a great milestone in Serro’s music career, has also passed through the hands of gifted musicians such as producers and musicians Mutoriah and Fancy Fingers, singers Jay Mukasa and Chris Masika, Guitarist Isaac Mugunda, Bassist Justice Ayienga, Drummer Alex Gichuki and saxophonist Eric Maru who gave their unique talents to this project.
Serro who was very thankful to her fans and excited about this album said, “I hope that my listeners connect with the music because I believe we’ve all gone through an experience or two that I shared in the album.” She also added that this would be a good playlist to ponder upon during the lockdown.
The album which was released on 31st May 2020 is available here. We surely can’t wait to see her perform some of these songs live as she one of Kenya’s most talented live performers.
