Yunasi in Concert, Jul. 27 2012 @ Goethe
In 2004, Yunasi developed a unique East African music style called Sesube which is a combination of Sega, Isukuti, and Benga. It takes sounds and inspirations, cultural styles and languages from local Kenyan communities, and fuses those sounds with a European component. This is achieved by playing a variety of instruments, both traditional and modern.
Since the formation of the group, they have performed at festivals like Sauti za Busara, Bluesfest and Festhorn and played shows in Kenya, France, Germany, Belgium, Mayotte, Djibouti, Tanzania, Australia, Thailand and London. Furthermore, Yunasi won the 2004 Kisima Award for Best Afro-Fusion Band in Kenya, scooped the prize at the prestigious US International Songwriting Contest in 2006, and achieved the 2nd place in the World of Music Awards (WOMA) 2008.
On this evening, Yunasi will present some of their latest songs that will be featured on their upcoming album, both in an acoustic and a more energetic set.
