Word Sessions Line up: TETU SHANI


A Self-taught percussionist and guitarist, Tetu Shani got accepted in 2014 to the prestigious Berklee College of Music with a scholarship to study Performance.

Though he had been performing as a session musician in Nairobi between 2011 and 2015, he was inspired to record his own material after meeting Jonathan Butler privately (world acclaimed jazz artist) at the 2015 Safaricom Jazz Festival in Nairobi. After some time backstage during which Butler told him to continue in music, he immediately started composing and arranging his own material and his debut album “Mood Music” was born. His first single, “Round and Round” is a bronze medalist and finalist at the July 2015 Global Music Awards. The album’s expected release date is in 2016.

And on the 5th December 2015 Tetu takes the stage at Word Sessions, join us for an amazing musical performance by one of the best musicians around.

See you then!
