About Gargar
Gargar, is an all-female Kenyan quartet which came to the limelight with their song Aids Wadilla through the 2008 Spotlight on Kenyan Music project. They are getting ready to leave for France where they have been selected to participate in the 2014 Babel Med Festival and the ‘Couleursdu Monde’ Festival.

Gargar means joining together in Somali. This quartet from Garissa is part of larger Somali women’s self-help and economic empowerment group. Gargar’s music can be described as contemporary folk and is a beautiful arrangement of traditional Somali music to modern rhythms. With a touch of Horn of Africa sounds, Gargar is the first Kenyan group to participate at the 10th Babel Med World Music Festival in Marseille.

Nominated for the “Orange” Award at the Babel Med Festival in Marseille (March 20-22, 2014) and the “World Music Award” at the Couleurs du Monde Festival in Brittany (March 27-30, 2014)
