NEW MUSIC|SURAJ WAWERE

Wawere is the debut single released by Kenyan house producer @surajforreal, Suraj Mandavia.

This is a respectful blending of contemporary house music production and more traditional musical and cultural elements and is very much in line with Suraj’s ethos, looking to progress the Kenyan electronic music scene without forgetting where it is based.
