About KenTunes

KenTunes is an online music store specializing in the promotion and sale of Kenyan music.

KenTunes emerged out of the frustrations of the website’s founder, Kevin Muthuri, as he was shopping for Kenyan music in 2007 during a trip to Nairobi. Having returned to Nairobi from a visit to Mombasa, he began shopping for the music that he had heard being played at the Coast.

After going from shop after shop searching for the music, he realized pretty quickly how hard and time consuming the process is for other Kenyan music listeners. However, he knew there is got to be a better way to shop for Kenyan music.

After much thought, Kevin enlisted the services of reputable website developers to build an exclusive and comprehensive online music store. The developer worked on the website for quite some time and then KenTunes was officially launched in March of 2009.
