Maasai | Jason Tamba

About this Video

“Maasai,” the debut single from Jason Tamba’s forthcoming album, "Don’t Give Up," is a beautiful reflective song from the heart of Africa to the hearts of the people.

"In this song, I am painting my childhood in the Congo as a shepherd, living a life similar to the pastoral tribesmen of the Maasai from East Africa." — Jason Tamba

The sentiment and energy of this track is soul-stirring and harkens to a time of innocence.
