Saint Evo is an Artist and a DJ/Producer hailing from the savannah plains of Kajiado County, home of the famed Maasai people, in the Republic of Kenya. Being the energetic choleric-sanguine DJ/Producer that he is, Saint Evo is celebrated as one of the pioneer producers of the Afro House sound in East Africa.
On his debut year on Traxsource, Saint Evo was ranked number 41 on the Afro House Top 100 Artists for the year 2018 and this was followed up with a ranking of number 21 on the Afro House Top 100 Artists for the year 2019. These rankings have confirmed that he is the leading Afro House Producer in the East African region and that he is making a positive mark on the Afro House scene at large.
According to Saint Evo, musical freedom is a priceless commodity that demands constant vigilance at the altar of creativity in order to guarantee its longevity. As such, Saint Evo endeavors to capture and acoustically materialize sounds from the Equatorial region of Africa, fusing them with vocals from renowned unique artists such as Brightness (Russia), Crescent Von Croon (South Africa), Lizwi (South Africa), Tina Ardor (Kenya), Rocio Starry (Spain), Zipho (South Africa), Toshi (South Africa), RubyGold (South Africa), Kwame (Kenya), Madigari (Namibia) and Idd Aziz (Kenya), in the creation of musical works that reflect the redolent recondite narratives of this African region.
In his exploration of the fusion of sounds from the Equator and other spaces, Saint Evo continually seeks to collaborate with an array of producers and percussionists from around the globe. Thus far, he has worked with Benjy (France), Cocosoul (South Africa), Chinjong X Chinjong (Cameroon), Sixnautic (South Africa), Omak (South Africa), Thab De Soul (South Africa), Warren Deep (Zimbabwe), Native Tribe (South Africa) and NIKIA SUNCHLD (USA).
Correspondingly, Saint Evo’s prescient vision has been to evangelize to the world this Equatorial sound. In this vein, the past few years have witnessed his musical productions making a mark on the international Afro House music scene, where he has released musical gems with reputable record labels from Africa, Europe & North America.
As a DJ, his sets are characterized by an array of African drums infused with smithereens of fecund slivers of synths and basslines of electronic music. Through his monthly show titled Talking Drums hosted on Drums Radio (UK), Saint Evo showcases Afro House music from Africa and the world that resonates with his musical philosophy.
