New Video Alert! by Kato Change ft. Lisa Noah & Jaaz Odongo

stakato is an Afro-House, rhythm and funk which has been skillfully blended in Kato Change’s new single; “Sta.Ka.To.”

Kato’s charming guitar tunes fuse with Lisa Noah’s silky voice, creating an enchanting sound that reverberates through the soul. The single is enriched by the masterpieces of music producer Jaaz Odongo, and the videography of Magiq Lens.

Diversity is well represented in the video, which is centered on Kato’s trademark hat. People of different backgrounds wear the hat, which is shared and experienced in a similar way to music.

The song leaves you to question what brilliant talent, freedom and unity cannot achieve.

Opinion: The selection of three fellows for 1beat Program is evidence of #Kenya’s rising status as a cultural hub

The tour dates Sept. 10-Oct. 7, 2012

What happens when you bring musicians from different continents in one country for a tour and residency program? Well, you have yourself smart power and that is what the United States of America has been up to of late. This is through the 1beat program that brought together 32 fellows from 21 countries to the US for tours and residency program.
What is 1beat?

OneBeat 2012 from Found Sound Nation on Vimeo.

OneBeatSM is an international music exchange that celebrates musical collaboration and social engagement through innovative people-to-people diplomacy. From September 10 – October 7, a group of exceptional young musicians from around the world will collaboratively write, record, produce, and perform original music in venues ranging from concert halls to city parks to rock clubs. In addition to creating new work, OneBeat Fellows will partner with community organizations, schools, and socially-engaged local musicians to offer workshops, performances, and public dialogues.

Ambassadors of Soft Power
Kenya is a bastion of sports especially track races and marathons but what is now emerging is that Kenya is also rising as a cultural hub. This is evident in selection of three musicians from Kenya out of the eight who represented Africa. The musicians who represented Kenya are;
1. Nina Ogot
2. Muthoni the Drummer Queen and
3. Kato Change
Other African countries represented are Democratic Republic of Congo (with two musicians), Nigeria, Mozambique and Senegal each with one representative.

NairobiNow takes this opportunity to congratulate these Kenyan trailblazers and wish them all the best in their endeavours.
