Harborwalk Sounds: Wambura Mitaru
July 17, 2014
Groovy tunes with catchy lyrics
Wambura Mitaru blends funk, soul, R&B, jazz, hip-hop, and African sounds to create a hybrid sound that combines “groovy tunes with catchy lyrics.” The singer/songwriter has performed with her band the Wambura Mitaru Synergy at the Close Encounters Festival in Helsinki and St. Petersburg, the Boston Ahts Festival, and several other venues around Boston, including last year’s Harborwalk Sounds. Joining her this year is likeminded Nairobi native Annette “annieSoul” Oduor, a vocalist, pianist, and songwriter whose mission to showcase Africa’s diversity, creativity, and intellect has inspired performances in the U.S., South Africa, and Kenya.
