Tired of the monotony of Top 40/commercial music played most Nairobian clubs? Time for some exciting combination of electronic and live music performances thanks to Electrafrique! This Saturday and every other third Saturday of the month in 2014; Kenya’s premium entertainment brands and the only collective that performs Afro-Electronic Music and quality Electronic Dance Music (EDM) blended with live performances: Electrafrique DJs will be holding it down at the Carnivore’s Simba Salon.

Hosted by Electrafrique’s pioneer DJ Cortega, in partnership with Electrique DJs and the authentic Beat Parade Band from Kenya, who are well versed with traditional instruments like drums and percussion, this music ensemble will merge live African music with an electro/futuristic twist.

Electrafrique is a premier dance music show, which brings together a worldwide network of artists fusing elements of African music with Electronic beats. Electrafrique finds roots in African rhythms and musical traditions, adding a contemporary urban/futuristic electronic twist to its groove. This culminates into an experience that identifies solidly as African and resonates with people and dance floors in all corners of the world.

Soon (Jan 11th) after premiering another monthly Electrafrique dance party dedicated to African music lovers in New York in conjunction with Okayafrica, Electrafrique will be hosting a themed monthly event every third Saturday of the month at the Carnivore, in Nairobi. The event will feature renowned local & international acts on a regular basis. They have in the recent past hosted Black Motion (South Africa), Boddhi Satva(CAR), Carlos Mena (US), or Renato Xtrova (Angola); all (except Boddhi ) for the first time in Kenya.

RENATO XTROVA PROFILE
Costa, Renato best known as Xtrova was born in Luanda, Angola, and early age showed interest in the world of DJs and musical production inspired by the bests national and international djs that marked the end of his 90s and early 2000. In 2003, he discovered his passion for house music. Renato Xtrova has since done many collaborations, productions and remixes and when it comes to House Music in Africa Renato Xtrova is a name to keep in mind, because without doubt this young man is a great promise in the world of electronic music specifically in the House Music.

SARABI PROFILE
SARABI was formed in 2005 and has in the recent years proved to be one of the most promising Afro Fusion Band in Kenya. The group is made up of 8 young Men hailing from the Eastlands Slums of Nairobi. All the members started playing music at an early age of 11 yrs and have over the years worked together to create one of the most solid bands in the Kenyan Music Scene.
Their music, made up of heavy traditional Kenyan Rythms, Benga and a blend of Western sounds has proved to be the missing link in the Afro-fusion Genre of Music. A feature on Drum Magazine in Oct 2007 declared the Band as the next force in Kenyan music.

Pioneered by Swiss international Dj Cortega, and championed by such brand ambassadors as Electrique Djs & The Beat Parade Band from Kenya, Electrafrique is an obsession with the magical rhythm element in African Music in fusion with contemporary urban/futuristic electronic beats culminating in a sound that identifies solidly as African and resonates with people from all corners of the world.
