Mordecai auditioned Kenchez and Wachira at the end of 2012 for a play at the Kenya National theatre. They got the roles and during the rehearsal process discovered that they shared a passion for music, spoken word poetry, comedy, dance and fashion. H_ART was formed not long after; in February 2013 the three performed together for the first time.

With both Mordecai and Wachira having been crowned “Slam Africa Kings”, H_ART’s music is heavily inspired by spoken word poetry. Self taught guitarist Kenchez compliments the rhymes with smooth, danceable tunes and some undeniable Luhya swag. Everywhere H_ART performs, they leave a lasting impression. Crowds love the versatility of the performances that make them laugh until they cry. “Uliza Kiatu” – a classic song that explains that the struggles of a hassling man can only be explained by their shoes (if only they could talk!) is an all time favorite. Expect more than music when you attend their next show. You will not be disappointed.
