Startup Grind Nairobi Hosts Muthoni Ndonga (Blankets & Wine)
Thursday, July 10, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EAT)
In her previous lives, the girl currently known as Muthoni Ndonga aka “The Drummer Queen” was among other things the head of Shaka Zulu’s harem , a cunning street urchin who converted into a renown mystic healer in current day Armenia, a polar bear, a Chinese dumpling maker and a fierce General under Napoleon. Her adventures run concurrently with the 300 wars, the invention of the envelope and the discovery of whiskey. In this life, Muthoni Ndonga is a living breathing singer of the hero variety. This embodiment of talent is a songwriter-flow-poet by night and creative-social entrepreneur by day. She is the founder & CEO of Blankets & Wine which is East Africa’s premiere music experience. Blankets & Wine is a monthly picnic-style family friendly music festival showcasing emerging genres of Urban-African music. When she trans-nights between sleeping, waking, eating and breathing, she brandishes her sticks as, (**insert victorious sounding horns**) THE DRUMMERQUEEN (DQ). Since 2012, MDQ has embodied an element of persona-the rapper and you’ll find her singing off all her music under #BaussLady - See more at: http://muthonimusic.com/bio/#sthash.iK0amZ9Q.dpuf
