Muthoni Drummer Queen (KEN/CH)

Kaserne Basel & Les Créatives / Support: La Nefera & Kaotik Trio

The rapper Muthoni Drummer Queen from Nairobi can quite rightly be referred to as the Kenyan M.I.A. – but with meaner beats. Since 2013, she has been successfully producing urban hip-pop with reggae vibe and electronic beats together with the two Swiss producers Hook and GR!. She took home the M4Music Demo Clinic Award in 2014 and has performed at the Paléo and Montreux Jazz Festival and even released a remix featuring Fugees’ legend Wyclef Jean. At the end of October, she retook the throne with her concept LP «SHE».
