Africa is rising creatively so keeping up with her new artists can be a struggle.

Today I’m going to share some music from one I’ve been sitting on for a bit. His name is Silas Miami.

I discovered Silas a year ago and was hooked. His boisterous personality and  wild confidence can easily be misconstrued as arrogance when he takes to the stage. Hailing from Nairobi, Kenya, Silas is a photographer, actor and singer/songwriter. The creative hustle is real.

Often pigeon holed as a neo-soul artist with African roots, Silas is quick to point out that he is still experimenting with his music and is wary of labels. His latest track, “Harder”, is a haunting melody which assaults your soul.

I’m also a big fan of his laid back jam sessions in Cape Town called Sunday Sessions, where he takes the time to perform songs from some of his favourite Kenyan artists that have inspired him on his journey. Expecting great things from this guy.
