Dynamic Duo, The Band Beca are on their way to the top. Riding off the success of their new single ‘Brathe’ this girl band is quickly making waves on the scene. XACCESS had a quick chance to catch up with them and this is what they had to say.

Tell us about yourself/your sound

We are your favorite girl band The Band Beca. Beca has been derived from the first letters of our names Becky and Carol. We are live performing artistes. Our sound is alternative reggae and dance hall

How did the two of you meet?

We met during auditions at the Sauti Academy. We became friends all through during the period we were studying music.

How did you get your start in the industry?

After we graduated we became background vocalists and we have backed up several artistes. While doing the background singing Pinye who is behind the project ‘Dreams to Beats’ discovered us and approached us to be in the project. That is how we found ourselves in the mainstream industry

What would you say is the message of your music?

Our message is women empowerment, we want to influence the world and tackle issues affecting people especially women through music. If you have listened to our first single ‘Toka’ you will realize it is passing across strong women empowerment messages.

Who/What inspires you?

Our fans, everyone who listens to us and who look upon us to produce quality music, those are the people who inspire us to keep learning, growing and doing music

What are you working on currently?

We are currently working on many projects like writing and recording more songs, vocal classes, our performances and shooting the video for our next single, ‘Brathe.’

Are there any artistes, both established and new, that you would love to work with?

Of course 🙂 we would want to work with different artistes Sauti Sol, Elani, Dela to name but a few in Kenya. Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Beyoncé (our dreams are valid) 🙂

Do you ever listen to your own music on your playlists?

Yes we do we are our own fans before anyone else

What are the major challenges you’ve faced trying to break into the industry?

We faced the challenge of getting a team of competent people who would believe in our dream.

Any advice for other up and coming artistes?

We would like to tell them to never stop growing, they should invest in a vocal trainer, and also get a team to work with. You cannot do everything alone.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

We are looking at being the biggest girl group across Africa, win awards but most of all having mentored other artistes as well as having changed the world through our music​.
