Spotlight on Kenyan Music
A throwback to the Spotlight on Kenyan Music series that culminated in 6 compilations of contemporary Kenyan music rooted in the country’s diverse musical traditions. For 10 years, the project explored musical traditions as a resource for innovation and creativity.
The Spotlight programme reached over 1000 musicians across the country with almost a 100 artists featured on the 6 albums.
This 70th anniversary celebratory concert will feature performances by the trio of Kenyan women of Somali origin from Garissa, Gargar; the taarab music group Lelele Africa from Mombasa; Juma Tutu with swahili jazz and Makadem with his signature benga beats.
