In 2009, Paragasha was founded by Anto Neosoul as a platform to nurture up and coming artistes.
Although the dream was short-lived in 2011, the fire never died and most recently, the need to offer young visionaries and creators from all spheres of art including music, film, fashion, I.T and entertainment has been more than ever.
With the support of Safaricom through provision of space at Michael Joseph Centre, the dream is once again a reality. Beginning 26th March 2016 and every month thereafter, Paragasha will curate a space that allows networking of young brilliant minds with film, art, music, I.T and fashion enthusiasts.
Why should our young brilliant minds wait to have a few hit songs or mainstream support to get a chance to perform professionally? The time is now. It is time to Paragasha. It is time to just be; without inhibitions, without fear.
Previous Paragasha alumni include: Dela, Rabbit, Winyo, Size 8, Sara Mitaru, Elani, Patricia Kihoro and many more artistes who are now household names.
In the renaissance edition of Paragasha, performers will include;
Libra Devine – a young DJ outfit whose remixes are the work of genius – they will release Isabella refix by Sauti Sol
Moraan Band – brass band extraordinaire
Kenna – Sultry voice of Soul
Just Imagine Africa – Imagine if Outkast had African brothers…
