The Goethe-Institut in Nairobi and Music In Africa have teamed up to host an exciting concert with an artist called Saint Evo. The collaboration between Music In Africa and the Goethe-Institut in Nairobi aims to provide up-and-coming local talents with a platform to showcase their skills. Later this year the two entities will organize panel discussions that will enable music stakeholders to discuss pertinent issues affecting the Kenyan music industry, as well as concerts that will promote new talents on the Kenyan music scene. The February concert marks the beginning of this collaboration.

Saint Evo is a young Kenyan producer and DJ on a mission to shake up Kenya’s music scene and take it to the world. He calls his sound, Equatorial House. Equatorial House is laced with a house music beat of ‘four-to-the-floor’ kick, enmeshed with erratic melodic sounds from the Equatorial region. He will be joined by by singer Inami, guitarist Tetu Shani, saxophonist Frazier Mo-ray, percussionist HK Gachago and DJ Marcus Ezra to offer music fans an experience like no other.

The concert is free to members of the public and kicks off at 8pm on Friday at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi, located on Monrovia Street in the Central Business District.
