Motorshow/Spotlight on Kenyan Music: Celebrating 10 Years of Impact, Sept. 19-20 2015 @ KICC
The Spotlight on Kenyan musical journey is a discovery of Kenya’s musical diversity, born of a cross-pollination of modern, contemporary music fused with local influences. It is a unique initiative in the region which has consistently developed, exposed and promoted local musical traditions as a resource for innovation and creativity. Its 10-year long span would not have been possible without the dedicated support of French cultural cooperation in Kenya and Total Kenya Ltd, the cooperation of the Ministry of Sports, Culture and the Arts as well as the partnership with Ketebul Music. It is fitting therefore that the programme’s 10th anniversary is marked at the 2015 Total Motor Show coinciding with the 60th anniversary celebrations of Total’s operations in Kenya.
Two afternoons of live performances by several Spotlight stars will celebrate this milestone which has become a platform for the development of genuine Kenyan musical identity ensuring that Kenyan music remains discernable on the international music scene.
