Andrea is part of a LIVE DJ Band known as Electrique Djs &The Beat Parade Band, a unique performance ensemble from Kenya that employ the use of Native Instruments in fusion with electronic beat synthesis. The end product is high tempo, high energy music with an African Rhythm and melody. We are part of the wider ELECTRAFRIQUE family, a worldwide network of Artistes in Fusing Afro and Electronic sounds.
The genesis of our unique fusion of two distinctly different genres of music stem from our roots as children of Africa and our love for Electronic Dance Music. As producers of House music, we felt that our performance was lacking a crucial element of music as we know it – the African Rhythm.
It was then that we embarked on a journey of discovering the possibility of introducing live rhythmic elements that would inject ‘African-ness’ into our performances. It started with a single djembe drum and slowly the instrument arsenal has grown to include a full set of native Kenyan traditional drums called ‘bull’ and African Percussion shakers like the ‘Agwata’(a beaded calabash) & cowbells. Contemporary instruments like the Saxophone and Keys are incorporated to drive the melodic elements of the performance.

As I joined several community and service groups in high school, I was made more aware of what is happening in the world. Occurrences of war, hunger and drought change my outlook on life and from then on I begun to use music for social change.” says Njerae.
Njerae is a founding member of C-KIZA, a forum created for Connection, Creativity and change among young people. She is the brand behind “Messages to Tana” a concert featuring Sauti Sol that raised funds for the Tana Delta children after the violence which killed over 118 people, left more than 13,500 displaced, as well as “Change Begins with Me” a concert that created awareness of the growing number of street children in Mombasa both held at the Aga Khan Academy Mombasa.

Michael W. Soi (1972) is a Kenyan artist who has been working in Nairobi since 1995 after completion of his fine art and art history studies.

Soi is inspired by contemporary life in Nairobi. His work provides a photographic diary of Nairobi and is a satirical commentary of social, economic and political trends. His work explores relationships – intergenerational, interracial or generally what he calls the economics of love, commercial sex work and popular culture within the context of globalization & consumerism.

A hallmark of his art is his unique vision and highly distinctive style usually brightly-coloured paintings with black outlines that are illustrative in nature and are both playful and biting. They are informed by a strong tradition of cartoonists whose works have satirized Kenyan society since independence – often bravely poking fun at the political establishment.

“I want to create work that highlights women’s issues in Africa, particularly issues that relate to how men view women here and how they treat them. It isn’t an interesting topic for a lot of people who view my work due to the fact that people here would rather not talk about this. They would rather bury their heads in the sand and pretend that these things do not happen.  This work highlights the role that has been assigned to women as implements of joy, pleasure and a means to an end to be enjoyed by men. This is a subject that I have had an interest in for a while now and the aim is to influence how men view and relate to women.”

He has participated in numerous workshops & residencies; exhibited widely locally and internationally; and has a huge following of collectors and enthusiasts globally.
He lives and works in Nairobi – Kenya.

The Line-Up – LAGOS NIGERIA
Directed by Folasakin Iwajomo

How far would you go to pay for your sister’s life-saving operation?
Ten men in a taxi, strangers to each other, head to an unusual line-up, where they must strip and subject themselves to blindfolds and inspection by a mysterious woman and her charge. Only seven go home that night, big money in their pockets. But what of the other three? The ritual is replayed again and again, and the attrition continues. For one man the rumours of how much ‘the chosen’ make spurs him on – he is desperate for the money to pay for his sister’s operation. But what is the price of being chosen? Iwajomo’s spooky, disturbing film confronts the perils of the poverty trap and the abuse of the desperate, in an allegory for the exploited.
