NEW MUSIC (KENYA): Pitson Addresses The Parent-Child Divide In New Song
17 November 2015
Now, here's a piece that will definitely give you that Holy spirit kick you need this week: 'Niache Niimbe' by the Gospel-lingala hitmaker, Pitson!
The swing-step, afro-beat and lead guitar licks that are dramatically re-configured towards the climax to change the song into a full-blown Lingala seben session. The song also addresses the matter of the divide that is created between parents and their children when they wish to pursue musical ambitions.
What makes it more than just another hit, but a revolutionary concept, is the fact that Pitson gives a solution to this modern day hardship:
“Ikiwa nitakuwa rubani, niendeshe ndege, niwe rubani, rubani anayeimba...” which loosely translates to: “Mum, dad, if I have to become a pilot, at least let me be a pilot who’s also a singer...”
Get the song below for free and get that inspiration that you perhaps badly needed.
