Dinner Party: Valentine’s Day Love Letters, Feb. 14 2014 @ Intercontinental Hotel

Love letters
This February 14th, 2014 being Valentine Day, Amos and Josh, Anto-NeoSoul, Harry Kimani plus more will host a dinner party at the Intercontinental Hotel that will also feature celebrities, business people and Cooperate executives. This event, titled Love Letters, will attract about 500 individuals from the music industry, business industry and the corporate world.

The night will be all about Love from the 60’s, through to date, it is a proper valentine treat for Individual and Couples with soothing songs and sumptuous dinner from the Intercontinental Hotel.

Amos and Josh is a music group from Kenya, born in 2013. They were first runners up in Tusker Project Fame 6 (A Kenyan Singing Competition). Since then their music acumen has grown to see them perform in events such as Live at the Elephant, Piano and Voice, The Kenya at 50 Concert and at the State House along music greats in the Kenyan Industry: Eric Wainaina, Aaron Rimbui, Chris Adwar, Carol Atemi, AntoNeoSoul, Kanji Mbugua, Sauti Sol, Kidum, Dela, Jaguar, Mercy Myra amongst others.

Anto Neosoul is undoubtedly one of Kenya’s finest vocalists; He is arguably one of Kenya’s finest singers of all times.

Anto Neosoul studied at Lavington Primary School where he knew he could sing and sing did he enjoying an invitation to perform a private performance for the then Cardinal Maurice Otunga (RIP), he also performed for Rtd. Kenyan President Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi at just 9 years old.

He continued to perform through out High School in Upper Hill School, A level Studies in Uganda and University of Nairobi where he studied Broadcast Journalism.

A Scorpio, Anto Neosoul is non pretentious, authentic and oh so soulful. He says what he means and means what he says. This inspires his writing, which evokes feelings and direct reactions on stage and on stereo.

Kimani grew up with music, teaching himself to play the guitar by watching an older brother perform. He attended Kirangari High School in Nairobi, where he already showed a great interest in music; he sang, composed songs, participated in music festivals and, at one time, conducted the school choir. His first love in high school inspired him to compose a song called “African Woman,” which was well received among his friends; they urged him to record the song.

In 1999, Kimani left school to look for a recording studio. Eventually, in 2000, he met producer Maurice Oyando of Next Level Productions; with Oyando’s assistance, he recorded “African Woman,” which was released as a single. The song began to receive air play on several radio stations in Nairobi. Encouraged by this early success, Kimani returned to the studio to record a complete album, tentatively titled African Woman. A second single, “Tuohere” (God Forgive Us), was released for radio play. Although the African Woman album was completed in 2001, it was not released due to lack of funds. Undaunted, Kimani returned to the studio to work on another album while his first one waited for release. He has since recorded and released two albums, Unborn and Tiushi Mi Nawe.

When the Festival Mundial officials visited Kenya in September 2002, they were impressed by Kimani’s talents. He performed at the 2003 Sarakasi Festival in Nairobi and was part of a group of Kenyan artists invited to perform at the Festival Mundial in June 2003 in the Netherlands Harry Kimani was also featured in the award winning African hop-hop documentary Hip-hop Colony. In 2009, Harry released his latest album, “the Quest”.
