R&S February 12th 2010

I have realised that there are as many poets as they are singers, sometimes you have both. Muthoni Ndonga performs spoken word and sings. She may be famous for her singing, and fabulous drumming skills but when the need arises she can lay down a serious ‘flo-em’.

Poet, Maik Kwambo, who is part of Mstari Wa Nne poets also sings. You may have heard him sing Nakupenda if not, we will be giving you a sample of his songs soon.

ONE TO WATCH
I was watching the reality talent show, Tusker Project Fame 3 (TPF3), when I saw a familiar face.
Patricia Kihoro, is currently one of the top three acts on TPF3.
She has graced the Rhythm and Spoken stage as a poet before, who knew she possessed such great vocal talent. And it turns out she is also an actress and you may have spotted her in the Just A Band video If I Could

Her first song on the show was Lazizi by the band Sauti Sol, keeping it local all the way, Catch TPF3 every Sunday on Citizen TV.
(**ahem**I had a little trouble uploading her picture but it will be up soon) Yep! here you go!
