The Moipei vocal trio ~ Mary, Maggy, and Marta ~ originally from Nairobi, Kenya, presents a program that is as unique as their talents. They interpret some well-known selections from the American Songbook and dazzle with their illuminating take on Broadway, new and old. Throw in a dash of Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman to swing, a flash of pop to provoke, then cash it all in with some gospel for salvation. Add a traditional Swahili children's song to bring it all back home.

“Beautiful, harmonious voices that brought me to tears, their vocal blend is like I have never heard before... WOW!” -Stephen Schwartz ~ Oscar, Golden Globe, Grammy, Tony Award Winner, Composer/Lyricist/Producer/Director/Author

"The Nairobi imports conquered the New York City cabaret scene in less than a week... "The simple and economic truth is that The Moipei Triplets sound sensational when they sing - at times mind-blowing, others endearing, but always, always enjoyable, something that originates with the actual sound of each individual voice being presented within their three-part harmonies. Each of the ladies is possessing of a voice that carries with it a rich, full-bodied, bold sound; that might sound like a description for a fine wine and, in many ways, these voices are rather like a great vintage bevvie, filled with character, uniqueness, texture, and totally intoxicating." - Stephen Mosher, Broadwayworld.com, Nov. 5, 2021

During their college years, Moipei enjoyed many opportunities to share their remarkable musical talents. They kept busy staging two sold-out concerts at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, presenting an eclectic mix of their own arrangements of Broadway tunes, jazz hits, sacred pieces and Kenyan folk songs. In 2017, they were featured in their first professional opera, Speed Dating Tonight with the Alamo City Opera company. What's more, the composer Michael Ching, wrote a new piece especially for the trio titled, "If not now when?"
