The new album of the popular Dutch pop group Bløf features a song called Binnenstebuiten. During their musical journey around the world, the group recorded this song in Kenya with the Kenyan singer-songwriter Harry Kimani. Once before he had already translated Bløf’s song Omarm Me into Swahili. Kimani is a big star in his own country. In 1999 he left school to seek his fortune in music. Not much later his single African Woman became very successful on the Kenyan radio. His album Unborn presents songs in their purest form and Kimani sings them in English, Kiswahili and Kikuyu.
