Tito Monako

Bio

Tito Monako was born in Bunia (Ituri), DRC Congo in 1987. His father, Valentin Monako - a respected Gospel musician, used to write songs under the mango tree in the village where Tito spent the first years of his life. In the early 2000s during Congo's war, Tito and his family moved to Kenya. Not long thereafter, Valentin Monako passed away and Tito took up the bass guitar, with the dream of following in his fathers' footsteps.

Over the years, Tito has become one of Kenya's most respected bass players. During his time with Threat Band (2013-2018), he discovered his love for vocals, guitar and song writing.

Currently working on his first solo-album, Tito Monako is an outstanding song writer. He is highly inspired by African stories that are speaking about his love for Congo, its ongoing humanitarian crisis and unrest and of course the big move to Kenya where his life changed so drastically and life became full of opportunity. Singing in Lingala, Swahili and his mother tongue Kingiti, his melodies and arrangements are inspired by his heroes Richard Bona, Jacob Pastoria and Marcus Miller - obviously Jazzed up by his unique East-African touch. On stage, Tito sings and plays guitar or bass and is accompanied by Natalie Lukkenaer on background vocals, Zach Amunga on keys, Isaac Mugunda electric guitar, Nick Mathers on trumpet, Idd Aziz on percussion and Richard Wandati on drums.

Having toured the world with award winning artists such as Jazz pianist Aaron Rimbui (KE), Afro-Pop sensations Sauti Sol (KE), Soul Singer Vivianne Green (USA), Ragga artist Redsan and Hip Hop legend Juliani, Tito has played on many major international stages.
