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.
