Motorshow/Spotlight on Kenyan Music: Celebrating 10 Years of Impact, Sept. 19-20 2015 @ KICC

Date: September 19-20, 2015
Venue: KICC

The Spotlight on Kenyan musical journey is a discovery of Kenya’s musical diversity, born of a cross-pollination of modern, contemporary music fused with local influences. It is a unique initiative in the region which has consistently developed, exposed and promoted local musical traditions as a resource for innovation and creativity. Its 10-year long span would not have been possible without the dedicated support of French cultural cooperation in Kenya and Total Kenya Ltd, the cooperation of the Ministry of Sports, Culture and the Arts as well as the partnership with Ketebul Music. It is fitting therefore that the programme’s 10th anniversary is marked at the 2015 Total Motor Show coinciding with the 60th anniversary celebrations of Total’s operations in Kenya.

Two afternoons of live performances by several Spotlight stars will celebrate this milestone which has become a platform for the development of genuine Kenyan musical identity ensuring that Kenyan music remains discernable on the international music scene.

Dance/Choreography & Performance: ROMO by Anuang’a & Makadem, Apr. 30 2014 @ Alliance Française

Kenyan dancer and choreographer, Fernando Anuang’a, returns to the Alliance Française stage with his new choreography ‘Romo’ (Luo for ‘meeting’). Renowned for his shows A journey into the future and Indo-Masai dance, Anuang’a teams up with the Ohanglaman Makadem (on nyatiti and kalimba) and the guitarist Isaac Gem to present a meeting of tradition and contemporary dance and music.

Anuang’a is part of a new generation of Kenyan contemporary choreographers developing a new dance language rooted in African dance and culture.

A unique spectacle where traditional Luo music and the timbre of Makadem’s voice accompany the undulating movements of Anuang’a.
