Spotlight On Kenyan Music Vol 2

Spotlight On Kenyan Music is a programme for the development and promotion of Kenyan afro-fusion music, initiated by Alliance Française de Nairobi in 2005 with the support of the Embassy of France and Total Kenya.

The project’s steering committee includes leading artists and producers - Achieng Abura, Suzanne Owiyo, Suzanne Kibukosya, Barbara Guantai, John Katana, Tabu Osusa and Abbi) and Kenya’s Ministry of Culture.

In 2006, auditions were carried out in 9 major Kenyan towns, with the selected musicians being invited for rehearsal sessions with professional bands, followed by live performances in the increasingly popular Alliance Française garden stage. Volume 2 features the best of the 2006 auditions and is yet another journey crisscrossing the diversity of contemporary Kenya in Afro-fusion trends. “Africa Mama’, the first track on the album, is a vibrant collaboration between several artists, paying tribute to the reawakening of the African spirit. Music is a universal language that unites peoples and cultures, and we hope you will enjoy this discovery of Kenyan cultural expressions.
