The Music avenue concert series comes back with a largely acoustic take on the music of Frank Koine.
Exploring the depth and breadth of the voice behind the upcoming solo album; Music Avenue.
Acoustic Boulevard explores the softer side of the singer/song writer, appealing to the emotions expressed through the lyrics and tunes of some of the songs closest to his heart.

Among the repertoire is a fresh take on one of the earliest solo releases: ‘Songa mbele’, which discusses loss, pain and finding courage to keep moving. Another song that expresses the pain experienced with the finality of a breakup, ‘Kipepeo’ a popular track with his social media fans makes a comeback from the first Music avenue listening party staged in November 2014. Exploring the theme of love and commitment is ‘Penzi la Kweli’, a soulful duet that captures a conversation between lovers committing to their love for each other with one asking the other to lead them to true love.

‘Whispering your name’ is an inspirational piece with piano accompaniment. The song is carefully weaved together with the writer making deliberate use of poetic prose to express his dependence on spiritual help. In the song are confessions that he seems to finally understand what it means to love and share through experiencing God’s love.

To celebrate the place of song and dance in the context of African culture is the song ‘Africa’ which suggests that the continent’s culture is deeply rooted in the ability to celebrate through song and dance and the fact that people in Africa always find a reason to sing and dance no matter the circumstances.

There is a lot to expect from the Acoustic Boulevard which promises to be full of diversity and story telling as Frank Koine continues to unveil the music expected to make a debut in the soon to release album, Music Avenue.
