Tcheka live in Nairobi
Roots International brings to Nairobi for the first time the singer, songwriter and guitarist Tcheka with his distinctive Cape Verde-influenced sounds. A one-man showcase of deeply soulful vocals accompanied by an inimitable form and mastery on guitar.
Tcheka grew up performing traditional Cape Verdean songs, and these references to multiple genres (batuku, funaná, finason, tabanka, morna and coladera) are evident in his compositions. But the influences do not stop there. Tcheka’s music is a busy intersection of Brazilian and African pop, traditional forms, folk, jazz, blues and rock.
