The Girl '(Wakariru') is urged to wake up quickly and fast ( cua cua narua ) and start her work early before the rains starts. Nairobi today will be on fire. Finish your work. Wairiru put on your best dress we go and dance in the rain.

about

Beating Heart label founders and dance duo Saronde (Olly Wood and Chris Pedley) deliver an uplifting dose of sun-kissed afro funk in this their latest release.

Formed in 2016 from an idea of fusing ancient sounds with modern musical concepts, Saronde have been creating a name for themselves across festival stages (Glastonbury, Boomtown, elrow) and radio airwaves ever since with their unique musical soundscape.

Following their previous single Kilamu, which has over 500k combined streams and has picked up support from Worldwide FM, Radio Nova France and Spotify (Afropop), Firewood sees the duo take it to another level. Featuring Kenyan superstar Idd Aziz and a 50’s Kikuyu all female acapella (sung by young unmarried girls while collecting firewood), the track is a bewitching affair, full of disco vibes, funk-laden guitars and joyous energy. A perfect tune to chill out to round the pool or to dance the late summer nights away.
