Formed and based in Oslo, the fairly new Norwegian band linked up with Bensoul for ‘Matatu’ from their latest extended play titled ‘Unaware’. Exburent character doused with a tasteful sense of humour makes Matata, the Kenyan musical act, interesting to watch. Dangerously hanging from the door of a moving van and standing atop a commercial truck, the artists perform the lyrics in English and their native tongue. Watch the well-made video by Aleksander Haugdal below and check out the album if you haven’t.
