August 2, 2011 – Let’s face it. It takes guts to be genius, or to even try to be the whiz kid in any relationship, more especially a pairing with music.
Early Sunday morning (as early as 1.30am) Muthoni the Drummer Queen took to a very good-looking stage on the lawns of Club Volar (Ngong Race-Course) for a performance that culminated in the launch of the video for her latest track “Welcome to the Disco”.
Young rock band Dove Slimme opened the event, before Camp Mullah took over, throwing down a little hip hop to keep the palettes open for Muthoni.
Dressed in a black jacket, black pants, red rubber-shoes, red bow-tie and white shirt, Muthoni started by orchestrating her two drummers (yes, two) and two keyboardists (yes, two) into a crescendo that set the stage for more than an hour of solid on-stage brilliance.
Muthoni is a hard act to predict, and I say that to her credit. Even though you most probably will not hear what she is saying, the energy in the music will keep you waiting for the next one.
We asked you about the song itself recently, now we want you to rate the video. On a scale of 1-10, what is your score?
