Mutinda is a self-taught musician who began pursuing his career in his childhood by playing a home-made guitar. Growing up in a typical Kenyan rural setting and later living in Eastleigh - one of the toughest neighborhoods in Nairobi - has made Mutinda interact with all kinds of people, whose lives and choices give him inspiration to share his messages, and be an encouragement, a hope and motivation for change. Singing mostly in Swahili and his mother tongue - Kamba - Mutinda talks about the adorable and even the detestable things life presents. Since 2005, when Mutinda was one of the top male artists in the Alliance Française “Spotlight on Kenyan Music” competition, his professional music career has grown steadily. Mutinda’s absorbing stage presence in live concerts has created a name for him especially within in the acoustic World Music / Afro-Fusion entertainment scene, where he takes his audiences on a journey through time and space. Under the indie-label “Metta Metta ART”, Mutinda released his first solo album, entitled “Matopeni”, in 2009.
