Kenyan artiste Fadhilee set to launch his debut album at the Alliance Française

I am so excited to finally share this work of art with my fans - Fadhilee Itulya.

For a long time, he’s been working towards supporting other acts by providing art spaces for intimate performances. It’s his time now—come witness the anticipated launch of his debut album: KWETU set to drop 27th April 2018 at the Alliance Francaise, Nairobi.

Ahead of the anticipated launch, Fadhilee says, “I am so excited to finally share this work of art with my fans. In this album, there is a song for everyone and I hope that it will inspire someone as well as entertain,” adding, “Come let’s have a good time at the launch, we will also have some physical copies of the album for you.”

Fadhilee will be showcasing a live performance of his upcoming 10 –track album which will include the singles: “We Don't Know”, “Kwetu”, “Shombo”, “Mama”, “Freedom” and “Flora”, among others. Some of East Africa’s top live performers: Serro, Labdi Ommes and Tetu Shani from Kenya, Slim Emcee the Poet from Uganda, and Tanzanian artiste Swahili Ally will be also performing at the album launch.

Influenced by the traditional music of his home in the Luhya region, Kwetu has a touch and twist of the “Omutibo” - an old style of Kenyan guitar music played using the thumb and index fingers on the right hand.

A few bonus tracks will also feature the percussive original Luyha Isukuti tunes for the listeners to experience a journey of discovering old local nuggets incorporated into his music. He also fuses sounds and chants from across the African continent as well as global conventional styles of music including World & EDM music on the first release off the album - “Freedom”.

Fadhilee is daringly different with a unique sound, which has managed to capture music fans across the globe. His artistry is composed of his reliance on collaboration with fellow artistes in efforts to produce innovative sounds, and promote knowledge development in the field of Africa’s robust Arts and Culture.
