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.

Debut Concert for AfroSoulful Songbirds
On the 4th of June, all roads lead to the Michael Joseph Centre, for Kasha featuring Serro and Kalahi. A long time coming, this concert will act as a debut of their existing repertoire. Both Serro and Kalahi are soulful songbirds, with memorable lyrics and magnificent melodies.

An alumnus of Sauti Academy, Kalahi’s music is a mélange of genres like rhythm & blues, reggae and afro-soul.. Her music is very contemplative and easy to sing along to. Her debut release Kitunguu, decries the constant state of despondency that loving a hurtful being leaves one in. She, through catchy lyrics and intricate harmonies advises her fans to flee from lovers who would rather draw tears from your soul that fan the flames of love.
Serro has performed at a number or events, honing her skills each time and is well on her way to becoming a consummate performer. Her stage presence has been described as magical, belting melodies that span the emotional spectrum. Watch out for her soon to be released debut jam Rongai, where she bemoans the loss of a love she held dear due to infidelity.

Coincidentally, both Kalahi and Serro are working with the multi-faceted producer Polycarp, who happens to be a member of Sauti Sol. We cannot wait to see what awesomeness, this synergy gives rise to.

Kasha will be a celebration of love and life. Bring your zing, fun, friends and dancing shoes!

Featured artistes include Swigga, Ayrosh, Ministry of Mouth and Afisa who are all very soulful musicians. In short, you are in for a musical treat.
