Wakake & Outlaws special live @ Choices | 24th April 2014

THE SPECIAL metamorphosed from PAMOJA to become a new band with seasoned instrumentalists. Their style incorporates influences from Latin Jazz, Afro-fusion, and Roots music. The Outlaws special will feature Nathan Omogi Okite and Ibrahim Uledi as the band.

Wakake’s music can be described as a combination of his vast exposure and experiences in different fields of dance, music, and theatre. His music combines elements of contemporary jazz and borrows from Kenya’s pop music, with many references to different traditional styles.

The other special appearance will be Nathan Okite. He is a guitarist based in Nairobi. Born of a Kenyan father and an American mother. He has interacted with music and musicians from across Kenya and the U.S and blends jazz with traditional African rhythms and sounds. He is going to make waves in the jazz and fusion music scene in Nairobi and all we can say is, get to know this man from Rusinga Island.

Then there is Uledi…  He glides and swings along with the fret-less bass and occasionally switches to his traditional fretted bass.

This is a diary event… keep a reminder on it…
