KINGS OF THE AREA: SARABI TO RELEASE NEW SONGS
JULY 4, 2014. ALLIANCE FRANCIASE. 7:30 PM. TICKETS: 500 ADVANCE 800, DOOR

On July 4, 2014 Sarabi, Kenya’s favorite local afro-fusion band will be reclaiming the Alliance Francaise arena for a full evening dedicated to uplifting and inspiring music that aims to shed a light on current social issues. Tickets are 500ksh in advance and 800ksh at the door.

SARABI was formed in 2005 and has in the recent years proved to be one of the most promising Afro Fusion bands 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 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 rhythms, Benga and a blend of Western sounds has proved to be the missing link in the Afro-fusion genre of music.

Sarabi, described as “Kenya’s most sought after artists”- Vibe Weekly, have recently performed to critical acclaim at festivals and concerts including: Blankets and Wine, African Liberation Day, Doadoa Arts Market- Uganda and Nairobi Live.

On July 4, 2012 Sarabi will be performing hit songs including ‘Fuata Sheria’ featuring Juliani and for the first time – will be playing unreleased upcoming songs of peace inspired by Kenya’s current political climate. Also at the event will be Sarabi’s all new merchandise line and the band will be revealing a brand new look.

Tickets are available at the Alliance Francaise. Advance: 500KSH. At the door: 800KSH.

Screening: Maramaso based on Sarabi Band Lead Singer – Nelson Mandela, Feb. 3 2014 @ Alliance Francaise

maramaso

Follow the story of young musician and activist, Nelson Mandela Akello, lead singer of the popular afro-fusion band SARABI, growing up in Eastlands, Nairobi.

Date: Monday February 3 2014
Venue: Alliance Francaise Auditorium
Time: 6 pm
Entrance: Free

MARAMASO
A Foresee Films Production, directed by Laura Asherman 2013, 54 min

Maramaso is a concept developed by a musician/activist born and raised in the slums of Nairobi. The name is derived from the philosophy’s end goal, a “Man Raise Man Society” in which support for fellow man and youth empowerment are more important than personal gain in one’s own life. This is how Mandela, the subject of the film, lives his life. The film illustrates his revolutionary philosophy of love and his daily struggle to survive in an environment that encourages self-promotion.

Maramaso Trailer from Foresee Films on Vimeo.

Screening followed by a Q & A session in the presence of the director and the cast.

Fuata Sheria
Fuata Sheria is a great new single by Sarabi Band featuring Juliani which addresses the dysfunctional state of Kenya politics and of the failure of citizens to take responsibility.
