It is a great thing to see Kenyan musicians release socio-political conscious music in this election year.
From Dela’s ‘Paza Sauti,’ MDQ’s ‘Kenyan Message’, Kenrazy and Visita’s ‘Amani’, Juliani’s ‘Machozi Ya Jana’, it is only right to laud their efforts in using the art to make a change and impact society positively.
H_art The Band is the latest music collective on that list following the release of ‘Think.’ The Afro-poetry band is back with part two of ‘Think’, a timely sequel to part one which was released in March.
‘Think’ is a spoken word composition urging Kenyans to sit and reflect on choosing the right leaders for our country.
H_art The Band breaks down the piece as follows:
“They call it exercising Your Right as a Citizen ?They even go further to say that For a Better future you have to do this ?is this true??? we can’t tell ? At the front of the Line, they hand you a paper with different faces / different choices ?At a second gLance it almost feels as if you are choosing the Lesser eviL? We have nothing against Politics as it is, But how comes it feels as if we are zero grazing as a Nation ? Same promises made 5years ago ,are still the ones being made now? Our Kids need to grow up knowing their future is safe and secure ? We need to be certain that, if your kid goes to school then the system ensures they don’t tamarc for so Long or at all after that?Voting is everyone’s Right and Responsibility ,no doubt ☑ But, we would like everyone to understand that we can’t depend fully on our Leaders to effect the change they promised – Sad Tho’TruE ? it’s upto us to be the change and to hold them responsible for their actions ?Lets not be swayed by cheap politics?Think about your Family, your Kids _& do the right thing .Whatever feels right to you✍Be Peaceful aLwayS ✌.”
