Lovers of Rumba music in the UK should prepare for a special treat by Kenya’s Rumba star Madanji Perimeter.
The Rumba sensation is coming purposely to perform live at Ramogi Night on 25th March 2016 at Starlight Suite, 82-300 Lea Bridge Rd, London E10 7LD.
Madanji Perimeter said he was preparing to give Rumba fans in the UK one of the best shows they’ve ever had.
This young but highly talented musician stormed the Kenyan music scene in 2012 when he released “Elector”, a love song praising his wife’s extraordinary qualities. The song has since been dominating Kenyan airwaves. It has also become one of the most popular ringtones in the country.
Madanji Perimeter said he never expected the song to become that popular but “God intervened.”
After performing with Musa Juma’s Limpopo International Band in Nairobi for several years, Madanji Perimeter formed his band Madjona Rhumba Int’l in 2011. He has so far released four albums: “Rapar Musa Juma”, “Apiyo Nyar Alego”, “Elector Nyar Kano/Amani Kenya”, and “Hera Sandruok.”
He is already working on his next album titled “Hera Bungu” to be released in June this year.
Madanji Perimeter plays bass guitar and the keyboard. His superb compositions and harmonious arrangements, velvet voice together with his thrilling stage performances have made him one of the most sought after Rumba musicians in Kenya.
He is excited about his first trip to the UK organised by Cyromas Events. “It is something I never dreamt of but God had planned for it,” Madanji Perimeter said, adding that he’ll offer his fans “an original Rumba show they’ll live to remember for ages.”
He is urging all to come to the show prepared to dance non-stop.
Madanji Perimeter is not only a musician but also a producer. Some famous Kenyan musicians including Osogo Winyo, Emma Jalamo, Nick Wuod Alego, and Osito Kalle have recorded their albums at Madanji Perimeter’s Bonah Recording Studio in Kisumu.
He is appealing to African music fans to support local musicians by buying their original CDs and helping them travel abroad for live shows.
