Discussion: Civil Society Dialogues – Education and the Market, Mar. 28 2018 @ Goethe-Institut – Nairobi

Date and time: Wednesday, 28 March 2018, 6 PM
Venue:Goethe-Institut, Auditorium
Admission: free

Our session on 28 March 2018 will be dealing with the connection between education and the market. How is the education system trying to make sure that its graduates are well prepared to enter the labour force? Are we doing enough to encourage young people to choose courses that are in high demand by the market? Is the professional education system geared towards providing the best possible education, even if it isn’t in an academic field? And how does the German dual education system earn its reputation of producing highly skilled trained workers?

Dance: Unknown by Dancer and Choreographer – Adam Chienjo, Feb. 24 2018 @ Goethe Institut

Date: February 24, 2018
Venue: Goethe Institut, Nairobi
Time: 6-9 pm
Entry: Free

Can we value what we don’t know? Is it possible to experience that which we cannot perceive? Can we then touch the soul of the unknown, can we make contact with it, could we listen to it? Can we feel the texture of the unknown? How does it move? From what direction does the unknown come from and to which direction does it go? Can we describe the unknown as still? Is it silent or is there sound and resonance? Is the unknown within time or is time within the unknown? To what extent does what we know contribute to the experience of the unknown?

Of happenings and experiences from the past, present and future, Unknown is an investigative journey through the experiences and places unknown and therefore deemed unperceivable but felt, can be proved, imagined and accepted as fact. The performance was developed by dancer and choreographer Adam Chienjo during a residence programme in Scotland and involves experimental dance and mixed media. It is accompanied by music that was composed specifically for this project by Ronnie Goodman and a video work by Raymond Ndikwe.

Admission: free.

Women in Music Concert Series ft. Wanja Wohoro, Mumala Maloba & Tribute Birdie Mboweni, Sept. 9 2017 @ Goethe Institut

Date: September 9, 2017
Venue: Goethe Institut
Time: 7 pm
Tickets: KES 500/-

Music performances by Wanja Wohoro, Mumala Maloba and South Africa’s Tribute Mboweni.

Wanja is a soulful Singer/Songwriter from Nairobi, Kenya and Sydney, Australia. She began songwriting from the age of 13; teaching herself the guitar and the piano and practicing accompaniment and composition. Her influences include the mellow sultry sounds of Amy Winehouse, Lianne La Havas, Ella Fitzgerald, Nai Palm and Corinne Bailey-Rae alongside an extensive exposure to Indie/Folk and jazz music. In 2014 she released her first EP ‘High Tide’ which includes 5 songs of varying genres, all exploring the different sides of her unique musicianship, cultural influences and vocals.

Mumala Maloba is Singer, Songwriter from Nairobi Kenya. Having come from a musical background, she started her musical journey very young. Mumala released her first single ‘Where di the love go’ in 2013 then followed with the release of her secong singe ‘Paper Chasing’ ft. rapper Octopizzo produced by Polycarp ‘Fancy Fingers’ Otieno of Sauti Sol. Mumala has perfomed at various events such as The Kinanda Arts Festival, Nairobi Fashion Market, Story Moja Hay Festival, Rift Valley Festival among others. Mumala recently graduated from Middlesex University with a First Class Honors in Law and is definitely one of the female vocalists to look out for in the coming months.

South Africa’s Tribute ‘Birdie’ Mboweni has joined a new breed of soul musicians that are putting their own modern take on the classic sound and doing it justice. The petite singer has worked diligently to carve a path that ensure that she too has a place in the music industry. Besides her album titled ‘Birdie’ being her debut offering, Tribute has long carved her niche as a performing artist having serenaded audiences in the Middle East (Qatar and Dubai) where she took up artist residencies playing with a jazz band featuring some of South Africa’s great musicians. No stranger to the stage, she has performed at international events such as COP17, the Grahamstown National Arts Festival, where she gave a stellar performance and receiving great reviews for her soulful offering, Her music expressed deep feelings and is profoundly emotional, jazzy, ethno and yet so soulful.
