Lagaless honored in new Luo Benga song

Lagaless Twitter profile picture: A new luo benga song mentions the faceless mogul

A new luo song mentioned the faceless and reclusive Tweep Lagaless.

Sidang’ Studios first artist Ellie croons in a song titled, Dr Theophilus Chando, which follows the tradition of praisename poetry among the Luo people. Luos are said to be people of “nyadhi” (immeasurable pride) and great music as well, hence it only makes sense that sometimes they engage in poetry of praise – for whatever reason, in their songs.

The poet, philosopher and now composer honors some of his friends, mentioned among them, Lagaless, twice, at minutes 3:47 and 4:37.

Sidang’s debut album “Sigand Ogila Nyakarondo”, the title song of which glorifies and tells the tale of the age-old Luo folktale of the hare and the spider, is going to shock the airwaves in Luo music circles. In the song Sidang’ narrates how the hare seeks a favour from the spider to build an “expressway” to the skies where the wily hare is scheduled to visit to his in-laws. The spider agrees and accompanies the hare, alongside other friends including the squirrel, the rat, the gazelle, etc. The juice lies in what happens when they get to the skies and are warmly received.

The artist, Ellie, demonstrates his prowess and power in belting out well composed music. Ellie is a gifted vocalist attached to the Benga Maestro Johnny Junior’s BV Band.

Sidang’s BengaStream is a project that supports young and upcoming artists in the various shades and styles of benga, to give it a new breath of life.

The whole album was written and composed by award-winning author Adipo Sidang’ and produced by Sidang’ Studios. The track producer was Emka Bangonga, whom Sidang’ mentions in the songs.

Sidang’ says BengaStream project will expand to include Nyatiti, Orutu, Obokano, and other artists; and other artists in what’s generally called Afrofusion/world music, across tribes of Kenya.

For Lagaless song, listen and pay close attention to minutes, 3:47 and 4:37.
