List of Kisii traditional songs, Obori bwa Baba song lyrics, Entaburuta, folk songs, music dance

Do you still enjoy listening to Kisii traditional songs? You are certainly not alone because several others are going back to the roots of local music. Trends indicate that civilization is unlikely to wipe out our once treasured genres and style of entertainment. Years have passed, but these timeless songs, like fine wine, are more influential than those released by recent Kisii artists.

The Kisii customs and traditions are evident in songs from earlier years. On the contrary, millennial Kisii musicians are actively blending the local genre with foreign flavours. While some have succeeded in doing so, none seems to have beaten the caliber of fresh and typical Kisii music. Even so, there is so much to admire in the ongoing effort to shape the Kisii music industry.

Bana Sungusia, Machoge Jazz, and Monyoncho are some of those who sparked interest in Kisii music.

2. Lady Nyaboke –Bana Sungusia

The song is by far the most musical owing to its fine guitar tunes. It speaks about Nyaboke, who abandoned his husband, running away with the children.

The husband is deep in tears because Nyaboke is not taking good care of his children. The enraged husband is not ready to accept the estranged wife Nyaboke, but the children.

For this reason, he pulls all manner of abuses and wishes her bad luck as a payment for the wrong she has done to their marriage.

More from Bana Sungusia band songs include My Boss, Tom Sagwe, Douglas Makambo, and Coca Cola.

3. Obori Bwa Baba song lyrics in Kisii language

Ekebwe’ ngiakura manga inse

‘Baba motengera Nya.ngweso’

‘Obori bwa baba ekeande’

‘Amaemba ‘baba’ matogoro’

‘Ee nyangweso yachci.yaboria’

Obori Bwa Baba song lyrics

Obori Bwa Baba song lyrics English translation

The ‘fox’ howls down the manga hill

The fox warned that the locusts are coming ‘Please note’

The rich and well grown ‘wimbi’ with big grains

The sorghum (‘dear mum’) looks like eyes of a human being opened wide!

The locusts came and ate the wimbi and sorghum (then the famous famine period called Nyangweso followed.)

The early Omogusii believed that animals provided sufficient clues when danger was underway.

Ekebwe, also called a fox, was among the most reliable animals for this purpose.

Egetinginye Ekengaini lyrics English translation  

A clever bird builds

Its nest so that when it rains it shelters

A clever bird builds

Its nest so that when it rains it shelters

Ee mother eh! a clever bird

builds its nest nicely

0′ perfect person, 0′ perfect person sings and sings

Our people you should be like a clever bird

So that you build houses when it rains you shelter

0′ perfect person, 0′ perfect person sings and sings.
