Introducing… Richie Gathu
Kenyan born and Bristol raised, Richie Gathu is embracing both his African heritage and his British home by sharing his musical influences inspired by his dual nationality. Today sees the artist release his new single ‘Cosa Nostra’
“As soon as I press play on Cosa Nostra, I’m teleported to Havana, Cuba or to the Amalfi Coast. In my mind, I see a beautiful sunset on the horizon, my body fuelled by 15 (or more) tequila shots as I hit the salsa across a pebbled street toward my lover who is in the exact same vibe as I am. The inspiration for the song stems from lockdown, the endless months of being separated from a lover and planning to “pull up” as soon as I could. I even had to sprinkle some Swahili in there to add extra flavour to the tune!” Richie Gathu
Back with his third release of 2021, following on from ‘Championships’ and ‘Euphoria,’ Richie presents fans with another self-written and produced single in the form of the irresistible jam, ‘Cosa Nostra’; a vibrant and energetic track that’s just in time for the warmer, summer months. Capturing the feeling an ideal tropical paradise, ‘Cosa Nostra’ is perfect to soundtrack your holiday.
