After a five-year hiatus, Irish-and-East-Africa-raised artist Kiruu is delighted to announce the release of his new single “Mbingu” on 21/06/2024.

“Mbingu”, meaning “heaven” in Swahili, is a groovy Afro-pop and world music number that pays homage to the splendour of mother nature and calls for its protection.

Produced by Cork-based Cian Sweeney, “Mbingu” weaves together a tapestry of musical influences and languages. The song, sung in English, Spanish, and Swahili, is driven by a captivating Lingala-style guitar riff and features spoken messages about mother nature from around the world. It culminates in a harmonious cacophony of voices, creating an uplifting and unifying sound.

Kiruu explains, “Mbingu is a tribute to the beauty of our planet and its natural and cultural diversity. I hope it inspires listeners to appreciate and protect the natural world, and to listen to each other and to the wisdom already there within our ancient cultures.” Fans of Afro-pop, world music, and anyone who appreciates a soulful, rhythmic journey will find “Mbingu” to be a delightful addition to their playlists.

Kiruu offers a unique sound, taking influence from his mixed background, with roots in Tanzania and Ireland, and years spent in Spain. His songs are both deeply personal and universally resonant, incorporating multiple languages and musical styles.

His 2019 album, Super Feo Express, garnered positive reviews from Nialler9, Hotpress, and other media, establishing him as a distinctive voice in the Irish music scene.

“Mbingu” is available on all major streaming platforms.
