Party: ELECTRAFRIQUE, Aug. 12 2011 @ The Vineyard

Second Nairobi edition of the global ELECTRAFRIQUE party, featuring Jean-Marie, Jack Rooster and myself on decks + brotha Tee on percussions… As always expect a lot of energy on stage and on the dancefloors, with an intense mix of afrobeat, disco/funk, coupe decale, zouglou, kwaito, the occasional kuduro track, all this leading to deep and soulful house at peak time… (mzansi heads in the place, get ready), all of this powered by the mighty hands of our bro Cobuya “Tee” the master drummer…

We are back in the beautiful Vineyard Wine Bar and Restaurant on Rhapta Rd, a stone’s throw away from the Westlands roundabout, following the Grand Opening of their Disco Bar (which, by the way, was quite the jam as well)… Three bars and kitchen open all night to give you the fuel and energy needed to sustain the intensity of dancing and partying till the break of dawn…

21+ TO JAM
