Book Launch and Photo Exhibition: Shades of Benga – The Story of Popular Music in Kenya, Jul. 12 2017 @ Alliance Française


Date: July 12, 2017
Venue: Alliance Française
Time: 6.30 pm

About
Ketebul Music and the Alliance Française invite you to the launch of the historic book ‘Shades of Benga’ – the story of popular music in Kenya, from the 1940s to the present – produced by Ketebul Music, on Wed. 12th July at 6.30pm.

A unique occasion to discover the foundations of modern Kenyan music and look at external influences that helped shape new music styles.

Kenya’s popular music traces its origins to the end of the Second World War. The returning soldiers who had fought in India and Burma brought back home novel instruments that would shape the modern Kenyan sound; the accordion and the acoustic guitar.

A photo exhibition, featuring rare photos sourced from private collections, will take some on a nostalgic journey to the pioneering days of Kenyan music and others on an inspiring journey of discovery.

Combining historical facts and anecdotes, Tabu Osusa (founder of Ketebul Muisc and veteran musician and producer) together with Bill Odidi (radio producer and consultant on media and cultural memory projects) will give you invaluable insights into the music and the music icons that have captured the imagination of Kenyans for six decades.

A DJ on a vinyl turntable will have you moving to old classics in the presence of the pioneering musicians John Nzenze and Peter Akwabi.

Album Launch: Days of my Life by Shoeshine Boy, Jul. 7 2017 @ Goethe Institut


Date: July 7, 2017
Venue: Goethe Institut
Time: 7 pm
Tickets: KES 500 + get one copy of the Album free

About
Days of My Life by Shoeshine Boy is an album that will not only make you get up and start dancing to the sensational reggae beat but at some point it will make you lean back against the wall and reflect.

It’s an album that has been inspired by the memories of the TuneDem Band leader, Kepha Charles, about what his father was teaching him as growing up in the ghetto. It’s about the life as a long journey full of ups and downs, turns and twists, responsibility and accountability. It’s about the purpose which is simply love and making the world a better place.

Admission: 500/= KSh + get one copy of the Album free
