The quotes “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear,” or even “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. “Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that,” speaks with the depth of wisdom that only Martin Luther King Jr. could afford. This profoundly touching social activist and Baptist minister inspired billions to do amazing work, accomplish epic dreams, and lead non-violent lives. Songstress Daria wrote “I Have a Dream” almost two decades ago to teach children and pay homage to the indisputable legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
Two decades later, and just in time to mark MLK Day, a new version dubbed “Dino Kiroto” by one exceptionally talented artist, Ness, graces the musical land, and it is such an infectious and luxuriantly melodious piece of anthem delivered in the singer’s native Kikuyu language and English.
With both a modern and traditional feel to the instrumentation, the beats here are crisp and danceable too. With his effortlessly glossy, sweet-talking, and harmonious vocals, Ness is able to breathe life into the narrative and effortlessly make this an anthem, especially with his Kikuyu-phrased chorus presentation that is so addictive!
Echoing the theme of this global tune, Ness indeed sings from his heart and soul, telling of how he has a dream, has gone to the top of the mountain, and has seen it! The sassy rhythms and dance-inducing melodies, seamlessly blended and complemented with such delightful vocals, are why “Dino Kiroto” is a must-have record if you know what’s best for your music playlist.
Besides its obvious entertaining qualities, “Dino Kiroto” carries a universally appealing theme at its core about each and every one of us keeping the dream alive so that we can come out of the other side stronger, more empathetic, and with greater intimacy of our most supreme and invincible natures!
“Dino Kiroto” has an accompanying high-quality music video that was filmed on a rooftop overlooking the dazzlingly beautiful city of Nairobi, Kenya.
If you have a dream of your own, just push the play button and sing it to fruition!
