The Grammy Awards 2020 is just around the corner and the nominations for various coveted honours are in. Well for the very first time in history, Kenyans are privileged to have their very own making the cut!

‘Tales of America’ by 26-year-old Kenyan J.S Ondara has been nominated in the category of Best Americana Album in the Grammy Awards slated to be on aired on 26th January 2020 on CBS. This honour is presented to recording artists with quality albums in the Americana music genre.

Ondara dropped this album in February 2019 through Verve Music Group and he will be fighting for the top spot in the category among the likes of Keb’ Mo’, Madisson Cunningham, Yola and Calepxico.

J.S.Ondara was born in Kenya but moved to Minessota, U.S.A in 2013 after winning the Green Card Lottery. His album ‘Tales of America’ gives an insightful look at the life of an immigrant who is just commencing a musical career journey in the US. More so, he sheds a light on the challenges that he as well other artists face in their daily quest for triumph.

“The album offers a compelling outsider’s perspective on what it means to be a young adult in 21st-century America. Just me pondering, trying to search for wisdom. Life is weird and America is so weird”, said Ondera in a Rolling stone interview.

It is time Kenyans started pouring support for this young lad doing amazing things on the big stage!
