Mstari has been busy, what with our appearance on Chanuka Dada on Ghetto Radio 89.5FM on Sunday 9th August.
Imani Woomera graciously hosted Mstari's Leon Kiptum and Maik Kwambo among other great poets on the 11th of August at the Silverbird Poets Club at The Junction .
Friday 14th August saw Project Heshima's Rhythm and Spoken at the Dass Restaurant in Westlands come back alive after a month's break...eh...Mstari's favourite venue! Dennis inkwa killed it with his piece IDP "Initials Defining people". really, it died... Maik Kwambo went all dholuo on the patrons wooing She in another rendition of his piece "She", before he redid it in crisp Queens English and of course Leon Kiptum didn't fail to dazzle Dass with "Mahogany Misery", even the odieros needed a dictionary for this.
Saturday 15th August saw Mstari's Maik "Ja Wer" Kwambo team up with the very talented afro soul group Elani to intrigue the audience at the Angaza Concert with their new track "Nakupenda Lakini". The concert held at City Hall also featured great performances from Inka, Aziza and the seasoned Sauti Sol. The concert showcased the neo Kenyan culture that is slowly but surely taking root.
Elani and Mike teamed up again at Club Afrique on Thursday 20th August to curtain raise for Eric Wainaina and his Mapinduzi Band, who are nothing short of revolutionary!
We are still not done...
Mstari's Grandmaster Masese will be launching his album with his Ritungu Afrika Band on Sunday 6th September 2009, the same date he makes an appearance on Ghetto Radio 89.5FM from 12.00pm.
We have plenty more in store..we will keep you posted...
Stay tuned...baki kama umekatiwa...
Ps. Become a friend of Mstari wa Nne on facebook, you can read some of the pieces in the notes.
