Party: Electrafrique, Jan. 18 2014 @ Carnivore Restaurant
Tired of the monotony of Top 40/commercial music played most Nairobian clubs? Time for some exciting combination of electronic and live music performances thanks to Electrafrique! This Saturday and every other third Saturday of the month in 2014; Kenya’s premium entertainment brands and the only collective that performs Afro-Electronic Music and quality Electronic Dance Music (EDM) blended with live performances: Electrafrique DJs will be holding it down at the Carnivore’s Simba Salon.
Hosted by Electrafrique’s pioneer DJ Cortega, in partnership with Electrique DJs and the authentic Beat Parade Band from Kenya, who are well versed with traditional instruments like drums and percussion, this music ensemble will merge live African music with an electro/futuristic twist.
Electrafrique is a premier dance music show, which brings together a worldwide network of artists fusing elements of African music with Electronic beats. Electrafrique finds roots in African rhythms and musical traditions, adding a contemporary urban/futuristic electronic twist to its groove. This culminates into an experience that identifies solidly as African and resonates with people and dance floors in all corners of the world.
Soon (Jan 11th) after premiering another monthly Electrafrique dance party dedicated to African music lovers in New York in conjunction with Okayafrica, Electrafrique will be hosting a themed monthly event every third Saturday of the month at the Carnivore, in Nairobi. The event will feature renowned local & international acts on a regular basis. They have in the recent past hosted Black Motion (South Africa), Boddhi Satva(CAR), Carlos Mena (US), or Renato Xtrova (Angola); all (except Boddhi ) for the first time in Kenya.
