JUDY BWIRE LAUNCHES NEW CD/// By margaretta wa gacheru. Published August 9, 2013 in Zuqka, Daily Nation Nairobi/// Nyatiti player and singer Judy Bwire launches her first ever CD tonight at Alliance Francaise. Entitled Judith Bwire, Mama Africa, the former dancer-choreographer turned singer-composer- nyatiti instrumentalist makes sweet music that fuses traditional Luhya, Luo and Swahili songs with funky pop sounds to create a soulful sound that is wholly Kenyan. Produced by Namacheke Music, all eleven tunes on Judy’s CD are her original compositions. They’ll be among those that she’ll perform tonight backed up by the Gravity Band. Soon after tonight’s show, Judy flies out to Germany to perform live in Dusseldorf and Cologne.
