Chemirocha is not only a song that comes from the Kipsigi tribe in Kenya but it also tells the story of how the American yodler, Jimmy Rogers (Chemirocha), became a God like symbol for the tribe. Bye Beneco have done their own rendition of the beautiful ‘worship’ song that creates another interesting context.
Bye Beneco ‘ s sound is ever changing, colourful, vibrant, expressive and unconventional as they take on a different element to traditional story telling in their songs. The music video has it’s own craziness to it, in the visuals and the song itself, whilst still remaining true to the original song, watch as you are taken on a colourful crazy journey.
