The long-awaited tour news is finally here! Nina will be on tour for one fully packed month in July and August in Germany.
If the excitement from the audience during her previous summer tour is anything to go by, then her fans in Germany will most definitely be anxious to see her on stage again. In this round, she will be showcasing her music on about 20 platforms around the country.
Now, with the international travel restrictions eased-up, 3 of the Kenyan band members will be able to accompany her on stage. With Mike Munene on the bass, Biron Orore playing the drums and Kasiva Mutua on the percussions, the 8 piece Kenyan-European band will serenade the audiences with Kenyan grooves fit to spice up any summer festivity.
The band’s vibrant horn section is made up of French saxophonist Laure Fischer, German trumpeter Christian Spors and fellow German trombonist Jan Urnau. Belgian lead guitarist Raffaello Visconti will also certainly be present to orient the evening into an even more melodic Kenyan mood, as he’s right back from an awesome series of shows with Nina’s band in Kenya.
