Kenya’s Songs of Protest
Ketebul Music have put together a CD/DVD compilation of Kenyan protest music from the past 50 years that you need to get your hands on. It chronicles music that has been a force of change, from 1963 to 2013. This is the latest of a series of compilations put together with the help of the Ford Foundation that I consider must-haves for any music lover.
To launch the CD / DVD, Alliance Francaise hosted some of Kenya’s finest artistes in a concert that was a great start to the year and end to January.
John Sibi-Okumu has narrated the four Ketebul compilations. He was also the night’s MC.
Lisa, talented vocalist for Just-A-Band.
The Alliance Francaise was packed!
