Poster-Rythm of our dreams2.2.indd
Date: December 6, 2013
Venue: Goethe-Institut, Auditorium
Time: 7.00 pm
Admission free

To go forward, we go back. To evolve, we grow from the spirit around us – as we mark 50 years of our conception, The Rhythm of our Dreams is an explorative and experimental journey of sounds, songs and images from Kenya. Through a careful selection of music and moving images, The Rhythm of our Dreams draws from a curious selection of music from all corners and times of our country. Tonight, through a historical and contemporary visual soundscape, we celebrate the diversity and the spirit of Kenya.

Featuring DJs from a diverse spread of Kenyan genres and subcultures, each set is researched and selected to feature a plethora of tunes; think Taarab meets Benga or “Night Bus to Mombasa 1996” or “Christmas lunch with Gukah 1974.” An evening of a mélange and collage of Kenyan dreams an memories.

Musical: Kenya at 50, Until Dec. 21 2013 @ Phoenix Players

Kenya at 50 Musical
Phoenix Players Present: Kenya At 50
Directed by Tash Mitambo
Music Director Charles Ouda

Dates: Runs until 21st Dec 2013.
Venue: Phoenix Players
Tickets only Ksh. 500.

SYNOPSIS
The nation of Kenya has existed from before there was a flag. Now, as we come up to our fiftieth year since independence, we celebrate our nation, our diversity, our drama, our love, and our cultures. We sing the songs that have made us happy, and celebrate each decade and each life that was in our proud nation.
Join us in a journey that is written in a narrative style and follows many different lives as they chase the future…

Without music, the story of Kenya is incomplete .Our determination, resilience, failures and conquests are captured in the songs we sing and dance to. Generations come and go but their music lives forever. Kenya
at 50 is a love story. Love between people who wade through the murky waters of politics, deception and betrayal. Together they rise but casualties cannot be avoided. Some just love but others just love to hate. The one thing everybody seems to love is song , dance and music . As they age together with their nation to reach the golden age at 50 they know from deep within their hearts,” MY LAND IS KENYA”.

To the audience, we encourage you to sing along if you know the song… and encourage you to dance as well. And spoiler alert…we make fun of ourselves and our culture but it is all in good fun.
