SYNOPSIS
The nation of Kenya has existed from before there was a flag. Now, as we come up to our fiftieth year since independence, we celebrate our nation, our diversity, our drama, our love, and our cultures. We sing the songs that have made us happy, and celebrate each decade and each life that was in our proud nation.
Join us in a journey that is written in a narrative style and follows many different lives as they chase the future…

Without music, the story of Kenya is incomplete .Our determination, resilience, failures and conquests are captured in the songs we sing and dance to. Generations come and go but their music lives forever. Kenya
at 50 is a love story. Love between people who wade through the murky waters of politics, deception and betrayal. Together they rise but casualties cannot be avoided. Some just love but others just love to hate. The one thing everybody seems to love is song , dance and music . As they age together with their nation to reach the golden age at 50 they know from deep within their hearts,” MY LAND IS KENYA”.

To the audience, we encourage you to sing along if you know the song… and encourage you to dance as well. And spoiler alert…we make fun of ourselves and our culture but it is all in good fun.
