TEN CITIES teams up about 50 DJs, producers and musicians from Berlin, Bristol, Johannesburg, Cairo, Kiev, Lagos, Lisbon, Luanda, Nairobi and Naples, enabling them to produce music together and exchange their knowledge about the club scenes in their home countries.
The project started off in Luanda in November 2012. After production phases in Lagos and Johannesburg in 2013, Nairobi is the fourth stage. Renowned electronic music producers Octa Push and Batida, both from Lisbon/Portugal, as well as Berlin based musician, producer and Jahcoozi member Oren Gerlitz are coming to Nairobi. They will record new tracks with Just A Band, Camp Mulla and many more.
The highlight of the project phase in Nairobi is a grand show with all participating artists. In matters of the venue we’ve got inspired by a common practice of early underground electronic music scenes which set up parties in abandoned warehouses. Based on that we will transform a garage into a concert venue, adding this exceptional warehouse character. This is going to be an extraordinary experience so make sure you do not miss it!

SAANIFU is a performance that combines dance, music and poetry, focusing on the subject ‘you’. ‘You’ in this sense refers to the audience as subject and concept of the performance. SAANIFU explores the space between the performer and the audience and tries to open a conversation with the audience, its expectations, thoughts, fears, and disappointments. Through contemporary dance, spoken word, and live percussion the relevance of the space that a performer occupies versus the space that a sitting, standing or moving audience occupies shall be questioned.
SAANIFU is a work in progress and will be presented as such. The title of the performance was created by the performers themselves; it is derived from sanaa meaning ‘the arts’ and sanifu which means ‘refined’.
The performers are Isaack Anyanga on percussion and vocals, Evans Nganga on spoken word and dance, and Adam Chienjo on dance choreography and direction.
This is the concluding party of the Bacardi Go Together campaign; don’t miss your last chance to hang out with great people and get treated to groovy music and first-rate mojitos and cocktails.

Children and youth from the slums of Kawangware and Korogocho come together to speak about what is important to them and they can’t wait to have you as their audience at St, John’s Catholic Church in Korogocho.
From Kawangware we have an impressive drama based on the everyday experiences they face at home. We follow the story of 2 children from home and school and see their unique struggle, hopes and dreams.
The Children come from a community organization, Community Organisation Development Youths (CODY) and the drama project is facilitated by Maisha Yangu (www.maishayangu.com), an organization that aims to bring the views and ideas of children forward through art and drama.
The youth of Korogocho have been working on a few short documentaries, dances and art exhibitions through Smiles Africa, (www.smilesafrica.com) a local organization that encourages youth from all over the world to volunteer and intern within the community in a way that directly impacts issues in Korogocho.
The price of Ksh 500 you pay will help us invite more people from the community for the show, as well as make the 3 organisations involved work on more shows this year that encourage children from the slums and streets of Nairobi tell more of their stories through art music and drama.
We encourage you to book in advance for a one-of-a-kind show.

The performance ‘TRIP en masse Kenya’ is created to remember the Kenya post-election crisis of 2007/2008 and promote peace.
The contemporary dance performance ‘TRIP en masse’ explores human emotions in group behaviour. After winning an award for best dance performance in the Netherlands, the choreographers of ‘TRIP en masse’ have come to Kenya to work with nine Kenyan dancers in Nairobi to adapt ‘TRIP en masse’ and incorporate elements of the Kenya post-election crisis, resulting in a non-political dance show called ‘TRIP en mass Kenya’.
Breaksession® Bboy Battle is a break-dance event unique in Kenya.
Founded in 2005, the event had its first public edition in July 2011 and very quickly became a success story. It is now officially in its second year and will for the first time feature dancers from all over the country. Created and developed by Joe Nene (a.k.a. Bboy Kay/BreakDjKay) the goal is to spark the Bboy Revolution in Kenya and bring a realization ofBboy/Breaking as one of the elements of Hip-Hop.
Joe Nene, started dancing 18 years ago inspired by the lateMichael Jackson, as well as Usher, Ginuwine, the late Aaliyah, and Missy Eliott. Ever since, he has continuously dreamt of what he has now achieved! An event which would make it possible for Bboysto battle, compare and work with others who have similar skills and want to share them.
He and his crew, The B.B.O.Y Squad will organise this event which aims to have Kenyan breakdance recognised internationally and take it to the next level!
