Growing up in the City of Nairobi in the beginning of the twenty-first century, much of the music was influenced by modern beats and sounds. Having been exposed to various forms of musical instruments, Daniel found the Nyatiti.
Amazed by its beautiful music and the traditions that come with it, he settled down to learn how to play. Daniel met Odour Nyagweno, one of the few people in Kenya who still knows and practice it. Odour became his mentor, friend and Nyatiti master, and passed on many years of knowledge and tradition.
