You’ve probably heard of a Kenyan songbird by the name Sylvia Barasa, better known by as Rawbeena. She shot into the limelight featuring Fena Gitu in a track titled Romantic.
If you know her as well as I do, then perhaps you would be pleased to know that she has a new song and it’s getting a lot of love from her fans and to be honest we are also feeling it.
The song dubbed Kiboko, which is a Swahili word that means cane, is about the love that is shared between a certain couple. Rawbeena is comparing it to a strong cane which can ward off intruders.
I really love this jam. I’ve listened to it a couple of times since it was released and every time it’s like I’m hearing it for the very first time. Yup, it’s that good.
Other than the fact that it’s a beautiful composition, I know you’ll agree with me that Rawbeena has a sweet voice the kind that you just want to listen to the whole day. It’s also a bit hoarse and that’s the icing on the cake.
The beat and instrumentation on this jam are also impeccable. They are so infectious so much so that you will hit the replay button without even knowing it.
The video was dope. Apart from the smooth transitioning, I loved how the made the best use of simple backgrounds and made a quality video.
Watch Kiboko below and tell us what you think. Enjoy!
Comme ci, comme ça
