After 10 years of an extraordinary adventure with the nerd collective “Just a Band” in Kenya and the United States, Blinky Bill releases his first international album « Everyone’s just winging it and other fly tales » with the new french label The Garden, subsidiary company of the legendary Lusafrica.

The album features some excellent, spontaneous, productive collaborations, especially with Sampa the GreatPetite Noir and Nneka. Other guests are personalities from the Kenyan scene, such as Muthoni Drummer Queen or Sage.

Today, Bill is a wild, prolific experimenter who does not look on music as a framework, but rather as a key to rolling back borders and enjoying endless creative freedom. He has become a perfectionist producer, ready to fight tooth and nail to defend the integrity of the musical research that ensures the quality of his writing.
