Grace Matata

Grace Matata is a born and raised Tanzanian singer/songwriter based in Dar es Salaam. Her musical journey started in 2010 when she got signed by the record label Music Lab(M-Lab), Media Kings. Her music is a unique blend of Swahili soul, RnB and Jazz with a special touch of poetry and light heart-warming melodies.

Her debut album NYAKATI (meaning TIMES in swahili) came out in 2013 and has taken Grace into the international platform and solidified her image as a unique female artist in the Tanzanian music industry. The album features local artists such as Ben Pol, Banana Zoro and Nuruel as well as international artists such as Wyre (Kenya).

She has recently released a single featuring the rapper Wakazi called ‘Dakika Moja’, which is a beautiful blend of her identity as an artist, and a little bit of hip-hop from Wakazi.
