Muthoni Ndonga, pseudonym Muthoni Drummer Queen, is a musical and cultural powerhouse in Kenya, with a unique genre-bending afro-diasporic style that is an irresistible club and radio-friendly blend of African drum rhythms, hip-hop, reggae/dancehall, and neo-soul/blues.
Her musical performance perfectly weaves together singing, rapping, and drumming, representing both Lauryn Hill’s consciousness and Beyoncé’s impeccable choreography, costume, and delivery.
She is the storm you will unconditionally be captivated by, as she creates strong music that addresses her experiences growing up in Nairobi and the places that women inhabit in the city. She is the bold, gripping, immersive; she is the storm you will wholeheartedly be drawn by.
At night, she’s a songwriter-flow-poet, and by day, she’s a creative-social entrepreneur. She is the founder and CEO of Blankets & Wine, East Africa’s finest music event – a monthly picnic-style family-friendly music festival presenting developing genres of urban African music.
As a feminist musician in Kenya’s creative landscape, she hopes to empower women to listen to themselves, follow their instincts, and build their own paths.
