About
The Italian Cultural Institute of Nairobi, in collaboration with the National Museums of Kenya and with the support of the Embassy of Italy, launched in 2016 two projects in the field of Archeology, with the aim of engaging Italian excellence in Archeology and Cultural Heritage Management, to preserve and enhance Kenya’s historical and cultural heritage, as part of the actions to promote the development of sustainable tourism and in collaboration with the competent Kenyan Institutions.

In the first phase of project implementation – January and March 2016 – surveys were made in the areas concerned, and in particular:

a. Turkana Region / Rocky Paintings: Surveys at the sites of Loiyangalani (southwest) and Lokori (along the Kerio River) coordinated by Prof. Savino Di Lernia (University of Rome-La Sapienza) carried out in collaboration with the National Museum of Kenya;

b. Malindi / Mombasa Coast: Terrestrial Survey of Prof. Sebastiano Tusa, in collaboration with the National Museum of Malindi, in the areas facing the most significant underwater archaeological sites, in order to identify the possible location of a future marine archaeological park.

About
Masculinity & Femininity by cultural instinct are gender assigned: men are masculine, women are not. Masculinity is a male enamored trait, and its admiration also makes it fragile. Femininity is female, soft, needed, but weak. Our social constructs depend on an incorrect gender-binary definition, but masculine and feminine is more dual than we realise. Maybe a single person can be both masculine and feminine – a concept we will be exploring through different art forms during the next Art & Poetry

About
There was a time when gospel music was rich, edifying and authentic. Back when radio stations played spirit-filled tunes and Bible-inspired lyrics. Times have changed but those songs have never left us. On the 24th of July, join To Him Entirely at the Michael Joseph Centre as they go down memory lane playing classics by Angela Chibalonza, Reuben Kigame, Gospel Fathers, Emachichi, Mary Atieno, the Kassangas, Christ Ambassadors band, and many more.

T.H.E band as they are known, are following in the paths of other gospel bands creating a buzz in the industry. The success of groups like Adawnage, Zidi the band and Mwanga has opened up a wiling audience. This is the last concert before they fly out to the Netherlands to perform. As if this is not enough, they are already looking to drop their album by the end of the year.

Za Jadiis their second concert following a successful launch earlier in the year at the Mamlaka Hill Chapel. The band played to a full house, keeping the crowd on its feet for more than an hour with their own original compositions, spiced with a few renditions.

The live concert, Za Jadi, will also feature Zidi the band, James Kahero & friends and a surprise act. Tickets are going for Kshs. 400 advance and Kshs. 500 at the gate.
