“The function of music is to release us from the tyranny of conscious thought.”
Sauti Academy will on the first weekend of December present Nairobi’s freshest group of musicians from our artist development program in two exciting concerts!
The first gig dubbed, “Identity” will be at Sheebeen in Upperhill on the 7th December 2012 starting 7pm. It will mark the graduation of a new set of Sauti Academy singers who will be stepping into the real professional world of music launching their careers. Six young ladies namely: Vicky, Mo, Cecile, Loise Ondiso Madete, Stephanie Wakaba and Mimi—dipped into eccentricity and elegance with spanking new sounds will be unveiled in a presentation of a unique blend of different music genres fused in their unique personalities. Their rich compositions will be a sneak peek of the “Identity” of the music of tomorrow.
What’s more? Another concert. Another song. Another story to be told … Join the rest of the seasoned Sauti Academy singers from 1st and 2nd terms at the End Term Concert titled, “Encore” at the Goethe-Institut on the 8th of December 2012 starting 7pm. The night’s array of performers will be a combination of talent, prowess and life’s twist and tales brought together on stage. Andrew Wambua & The Band Afrology and Waithera with her band will also be curtain-raising at the End Term Concert. Our select-few musicians were born to entertain. And with this guarantee; we invite you to be part of a musical journey that is set to leave the audience asking for an Encore!
Penya Africa will also be showcasing at the Kenya Music Week from 7-9th December 2012 at the Sarit Centre. Come meet & greet our artists, get yourself an autographed album and know more about all Penya Africa programs.
