Tomorrow, August 30th, marks a special day for musician June Gachui but also for those that have been following this acclaimed thespian’s journey in music.
The seasoned singer, songwriter and an accomplished Intellectual Property (IP) lawyer will release her debut album tomorrow at the newly refurbished Kenya National Theatre. Poised to be an unforgettable out-of-the-ordinary experience for all in attendance, Tuesday’s show will feature collaborations with Eddie Grey, Blinky Bill and Gachui’s all-girl band The Flower Project, just to mention but a few.
Dubbed ‘Twenty Years’, the album is a testament of Gachui’s 20-year musical journey and life experiences.
Capital Lifestyle sat down with the talented singer and songwriter before her album launch to get to know her better.
