Kiruu – Nyumbani
Anyone for fire spinning?
Then feast your eyes on Fergus Murtagh‘s video for Dublin-based East African singer Kiruu’s new single.
The title means ‘home’ in Swahili and the video was shot in Deer Park and various other locations in Dublin.
Kiruu’s new album Super Feo Express has been compared to other “world music” artists such as Manu Chao and Paul Simon.
Joining Kiruu in his band are Cote Calmet on drums and Barry Donohue on bass.

Maybe by then cyclists will have to hold a license and pay insurance…

Mandatory insurance would need to be linked to unworkable bicycle registration. BTW, I have 3rd party insurance for my bicycle, and fully comp for the car. An estimated 1 million motorists in the UK drive with no insurance. https://t.co/YZN1WuQaiY
