Bengatronics (DJ Gregg Tendwa) ft. Wakuu (Makadem & Kasiva Mutua), Feb.19 2018 @ Alliance Française

Date: February 19, 2018
Venue: Alliance Française Gardens
Time: from 7 pm
Entry: Free

Benga is undoubtedly Kenyan’s original dance music. Bengatronics, coined by sound producer/DJ Gregg Tendwa, can be a sound, a vibe or a movement. It is essentially a cocktail of folk, dance, electronic and experimental fusion from East Africa. Borrowing heavily from authentic benga styles, it introduces digital influences such as real-time remixing, sampling, and improvisation of arrangements in a live performance setting.

After performances at the Kilifi New Year Festival, the Bengatronics collective showcase some of the heavyweights of Kenyan music scene (the Wakuu) with Makadem, the nyatiti wielding ohanglaman and Kasiva Mutua, the globe-trotting percussionist.

From performances at some of the world’s iconic classical music venues: Carnegie Hall (New York), Théâtre des Champs-Elysées and Royal Opera House Versailles (Paris), Berliner Philharmonic (Germany) to the Alliance Française Nairobi.

Don’t miss this unique piano recital by an incredibly talented French pianist of Lebanese and Mexican origins. Perfectly at ease performing Liszt, Schumann, De Falla, Lecuona or Debussy, Simon eloquently introduces Afro-Cuban Latin influences to the classical repertoire with brilliant flair and charisma that is defined by his multicultural heritage.
