Muthoni Drummer Queen has released her 4th studio album titled River. The album is the 3rd collaborative album between Swiss producer duo GR and Hook and Muthoni.
River features a series of global afro-diasporic sounds, blending hiphop, reggae-dancehall and soulful R&B fused with traditional drum rhythms from various ethnic communities in Kenya.
The album was produced in 2019 during the collaborators’ Nairobi based creative residency, and further developed during their 50+ date touring season in the same year. It includes light, upbeat, feel good, deeply empowering anthems that celebrate the rise and rise of global afro connections, sounds, vibes, culture, fashion, art, music and all round greatness.
In terms of the concept, River was inspired by the journey that individual Africans take from the spirit world, into a localized ethnic identity.
