Mashujaa Day Concert/Party: Renato Xtrova Live feat Sarabi, Oct. 20 2013 @ Tree House

Electrafrique Proudly presents Renato Xtrova Live @ Electafrique also featuring Sarabi Live in Concert

Time: 7pm – 5am

Hosted By: Dj Cortega,Electrique Djs & the Beat Parade Band
MC: Coco Rasta Ngori

Sarabi will be performing Live from 8pm, paying tribute to Kenya’s Mashujaa’s including the Westage Heroes.

Costa, Renato best known as Xtrova was born in Luanda, Angola, and early age showed interest in the world of DJs and musical production inspired by the bests national and international djs that marked the end of his 90s and early 2000. In 2003, he discovered his passion for house music. Renato Xtrova has since done many collaborations, productions and remixes and when it comes to House Music in Africa Renato Xtrova is a name to keep in mind, because without doubt this young man is a great promise in the world of electronic music specifically in the House Music.

SARABI was formed in 2005 and has in the recent years proved to be one of the most promising Afro Fusion Band in Kenya. The group is made up of 8 young Men hailing from the Eastlands Slums of Nairobi. All the members started playing music at an early age of 11 yrs and have over the years worked together to create one of the most solid bands in the Kenyan Music Scene.
Their music, made up of heavy traditional Kenyan Rythms, Benga and a blend of Western sounds has proved to be the missing link in the Afro-fusion Genre of Music. A feature on Drum Magazine in Oct 2007 declared the Band as the next force in Kenyan music.

Electrafrique is premier concert series bringing together a worldwide network of artistes fusing elements of African music with Electronic Music. Pioneered by Swiss international Dj Cortega, and championed by such brand ambassadors as Electrique Djs & The Beat Parade Band from Kenya, Electrafrique is an obsession with the magical rhythm element in African Music in fusion with contemporary urban/futuristic electronic beats culminating in a sound that identifies solidly as African and resonates with people from all corners of the world.
