Roots (Acoustic Version) - Wanja Wohoro




Matriarch is a ten track concept album exploring womanhood, blackness, Kenyan heritage, love and self actualisation. The story begins with the first track ‘Roots’, describing the process of coming home, learning where you’re from and establishing yourself in your original soil.


Lay your roots, beneath these evergreens
Lay your roots, beneath these ever greens,
Darling tell the truth beneath these evergreens,
We’ll see our babies bloom, beneath these evergreens,
Daughter they will see you as a flower,
Want you to wither and turn sour,
But your roots are built like towers beneath you

Lay your roots, beside this baobab stream,
Lay your roots, in ancient fertile dreams,
Lay your roots, your motherland will sing,
Lay your roots, One day they’ll name you queen

Mother, I will have to prove my worth,
I’ve had this skin and name since birth,
Will my roots thrive in this earth, beneath you
