Many average Kenyans might not know who Tetu Shani is but for the intellect and the music connoisseurs the musician is something extra ordinary and something out of your ordinary “box”. Tetu Shani is a talented artiste that does not only represent Kenya in his music but represent the whole Africa as a region.
“Guitar-wielding Tetu Shani, arguably Kenya’s leading Contemporary Folk musician, enjoys a wealth of influences in his music. His distinctly original sound is as African as it is cosmopolitan.
