Kenya: Cece Sagini - "Ensobosobo" – beehype – Best Music from Around the World

Cece Sagini

“Here comes the very beautiful girl / Sweet golden ground cherry / Looking good, walking slow and well, beautiful / Sweet golden ground cherry, sweet mushroom, truly beautiful.”

This summer’s most immediate Kenyan hit comes probably from Cece Sagini, a contemporary artist who’s not afraid to combine traditional inspirations with urban sound. Just like in her latest single, “Ensobosobo”, produced by a fellow Nairobian artist Jaaz Odongo.

This refreshing song combines three languages – Kisii, Swahili and English – and features a very special guest, Nyangau, who’s a virtuoso of a local instrument called obokano. Enjoy it, while watching a story “of love between individuals from different clans”, as pictured by the director Moses Osidiana.
