H_ART THE BAND is a music group from Kenya. the Group is made up of Mordecai Mwini Kimeu (ASAP), Wachira Gatama (G.T) and Kenneth Muya Mukhwana (KENCHEZ). The group has defied all odds against them to be labelled as one of the best bands in Kenya and East Africa. With time, they have artistically flourished into a revolutionary force not only in their musical poetic presentation but also in their conspicuously fashionable sense of futuristic style.
Meeting in the corridors of their acting careers at the Kenya national theatre in late 2012, the three discovered that they share a similar passion for music, spoken word/poetry, fashion and arts in general. Not long after H_ART THE BAND was formed. They later joined Penya Africa’s prestigious artist development program Sauti Academy from which they graduated from in April 2014; after a year of hard work, determination and performing at almost every venue and street corner in Nairobi, Kenya, building an ever growing steady reputation with various audiences.
Picture soulful African inspired acoustics, smooth harmonised vocals fused with a touch of well-knit spoken word/poetry all blended into one thick pastry of art then served with a witty sense of humor. Alas! H_ART THE BAND. Heavily inspired by day-to-day experiences, their music speaks to generations: from the young to the aged. With Mordecai and Wachira both being “Slam Africa poetry Kings,” self-taught guitarist Kenchez compliments their rhymes with smooth African tunes, while Mordecai adorns their jams with his heavenly vocals, thus creating a fresh genre they like to call AFRO-POETRY.
By aligning their unwavering dedication to the do-it-yourself work ethic with their undeniable musical versatility, energy and witty nature they make every performance a pulsating 'fan-magnet'. H_ART the BAND always give their fans a memorable feel-good experience.
