A novel set in Portuguese Goa and British Kenya in mid-20th. century. 'Matata means 'trouble' in Swahili, as Chico discovers in 1928, after jumping ship on a journey across the ocean from India to Africa. His plan is to one day retire and return to his beloved Goa. But bigger matata comes along with the birth of his second child, Lando.

Just Matata, narrated by Lando, brings to life these multi-layered stories that straddle two distinct colonies: bucolic and romantic Goa (india) and the adventure-filled yet precarious world of British Kenya. The stories, alternatively funny, sad or evocative, deal with the enduring dichotomy between generation, race, cultures and love, and the transformational impact of destiny-changing events in life perpetual journey.
