Kenyan group Matata based in Oslo, Norway has offered yet another stunning release titled ‘Ruracio.’
The group’s new song is a dance tune with mid-tempo execution blended by African chants; a fusion of genge and trap influences which has become their signature style bouncing off the gengetone wave taking over the Kenyan pop scene.
The song title ‘Ruracio’ means dowry in English, as it were in many African cultures payment of the bride price mostly by the man is a sign of his commitment to the wife-to-be and shows that he is willing to take care of her. The song taps onto the age-old tradition but with a mix of contemporary of modern influences which is a representation of the lives we live.
The group made up of Freddy Milanya, Festus Mwenda, Richard Mathu, Marcus Ojiambo, and Ken Kimthey made waves in the music industry through their music, dance and most of all high-quality, well-executed visuals; the group does not veer from the three major inputs that characterize their brand on their new project, ‘Ruracio’ is also accompanied by impeccable visuals, colorful actualization, creative camera angles that present the story-line in great fashion.
The video tells a story of a man out to prove he’s not willing to pay the bride price but willing to go the extra mile; the group then plans the perfect art heist at the museum but hysterically in the end, after they attempt to cross each other only one of them escapes with the loot, the rest are arrested.
