Many who are familiar with the Kenyan Afro-fusion scene have discovered a gem in the sultry vocals and lyrics of Sara Mitaru. If you have not yet heard her music below is a track that urges peace in Africa called: Stop the War.Just so you can hear what the buzz is about Sara, here are a sampling of reviews.Drum Magazine, a leading commentator on African artistes and events noted:
The first time Sara Mitaru got a lot of publicity was on January 19, 2007 when she performed at the launch of Eric Wainaina’s album Twende Twende at Alliance Francaise Gardens. Sara was backed by Wambu Mitaru and 2005 Kora Award winner Neema Ntalel (who along with two other backup artists have been fondly nicknamed The Spectaculars because they all wear glasses). Sara and her backup team recently performed during Urban Legends, a monthly concert held at the Carnivore that showcases various Kenyan artists.
Sara is a gifted vocalist whose range and command of her genre are enviably the most striking parts of her performance. She has performed in Kenya, the UK, and soon, is set to travel more sharing her music and her passion.For those of you who are fans of Papa Wemba, she captures the track ‘Rail On’ LINK HERE.
