Eric Wainaina’s music to date has been a blend of Kenyan Benga characterised by Soukouss-inspired guitar lines, pop harmony and traditional instruments. After garnering close to every award the local and regional industry has to offer, Eric is releasing a new album in 2018 titled Brand New Day. The first single off this album, Okay, was released worldwide on 18th January 2018.
His earliest songs, Daima and Nchi Ya Kitu Kidogo became anthems sung across the country – both of them powerful indictments of authoritarianism and ethnic divisiveness. His discography includes Sawa Sawa (2001), Twende Twende (2006), Love and Protest (2011) and in 2018, Brand New Day.
