M. Rumbi drops off this new record tagged Daima.
The multi-instrumentalist, rapper, singer and producer, originally from Nairobi Kenya currently residing in Bloemfontein, Michael Rumbi professionally known as M. Rumbi has released a brand new single titled ‘Daima’. M. Rumbi starts the year with something different, something which is more easily experienced than explained. ‘Daima’ a Swahili word that means “always”, a word that speaks of permanence, of continued existence.
M. Rumbi paints the morose picture of an unhappy relationship, a juxtaposition to the title. A one-sided love story of one who has gone above and beyond to be with their love, who only asks for reciprocation, recognition for what they’ve done, despite that fact it seems unlikely to ever come. His words brought to life by Monique Burger, over an ethereal soundscape M. Rumbi shows his musical dexterity, that sound is merely a medium for his creativity – whether it’s boom-bap beats, future soul sounds or that indie goodness.
