HODI - started production in 2001 and completed in 2005.



Jirani is Kiswahili for neighbour. My album title "HODI" means "knock, knock" - my chance at opening doors. I was born in 1963, in Kenya. My roots are Seychelles, Mauritius and Portugal. I’ve lived in Dublin since 1996 with my wife and three children.
In my early 20s, I joined a band as the lead vocalist. I left the band and later got married in Kenya in 1989. I only started writing songs in 2001, when I decided that I should compose a song for my daughter Rachel who has Cerebral Palsy. With my Casio keyboard I came up with beats that needed lyrics. In early 2003, I invested in a computer from which I now create my music and have slowly gained experience to master/mix my music a bit better.
I started working with country beats and then moved into the latest genre of music. The songs I have uploaded on my EPK are all done at home.
My dream is to be able to be a part of the music industry as a whole, as I strongly believe music brings people together. Being from Africa I believe in lively music with strong percussion which keeps people on their feet.
