"Trod 'Pon This Land" - The debut cypher from The Breadsteppas collective. The track dropped for streaming only and on MP3 version in 2016. The tack features 4 vocalists and 4 unique styles represented in English, Swahili and Sheng. The track is a true electro-dancehall-hip-hop collaboration between the Breadsteppas themselves and is definately a trend-setter in terms of music and sound from the assortment of urban music emerging from Kenya.
Here is a high fidelity "Sub-Saharan Dancehall" version of the song . The song was originally composed by Mumo and Ra Ny'Kang as The Breadsteppas for a local film soundtrack. The song took on several iterations between JJ and Mumo, with Mumo composing variations on the theme and JJ remixing those.
Mr. Politician tulia,
Me trod pond de land
me trod pon jah land
It's been a long time,
Bread in my hand,
I never knew,
that I could lose so much,
...to the stars,
Don't shed a tear,
(The Sub-Saharan)They'd rather kill all of y'all with Bilharzia,
and run off 'for the police arrive in full riot gear
The Hyena tears it's way through semi-arid areas
in a very savage savannah,
...here, I rolled us slims for the trip to Havana
wacha I ask the landlord for fire
cuz kuna a-sufferer afa....
