After a successful first edition at Tree House Nairobi two months ago, Jamhuri Festival hosts the second edition of TWICE UPON YESTERDAY slated for the 1st of September from 7pm.
Jamhuri Festival is a Kenyan based festival established in 2015 to share and celebrate the rich and diverse African talents with the world. Known for its popular Eastlands based Block Parties, the festival has provided an amazing showcasing and networking platform for performing and creative artists alike. During the annual event, showcases range from performances to workshops and clinics steered by household industry names.
Now, after a successful first edition at Tree House Nairobi two months ago, Jamhuri Festival hosts the second edition of TWICE UPON YESTERDAY slated for the 1st of September from 7pm. A brainchild of Third Hand Music who will headline the event, roping in Jamhuri Festival for the event production is bound to take the vision a notch higher.
“I am glad we get to do this again. In the first edition we had a great turn out of people and we are grateful. This time round I would love to pack the place with young people who love music as much as we do.” Commented Tom Olang founder of Jamhuri festival.
The festival’s online series dubbed Jamhuri Jam Sessions has also attracted quite the traction from fans and media alike with mentions from local and international media such as MTV Base Africa. This has since morphed into a weekly concert series (every Wednesday from 7:30pm) hosted at Nyama Mama Delta Corner after the realisation of a partnership between the two entities earlier in the year.
An event with the intention of building a super live performance culture among the stars of tomorrow, today, through the integration performance development programs. Other guest appearances from Steph Kapela, Swiga & Tha Movement, Le Band, Phil The Music, Basthma, Zeshari and Hellen Songbird. Prior to the event, artists are set to take part in performance development programs from the dreaded Z6 Cross-fit fitness Challenge to voice classes. This is surely one for the books. Where else will you get to witness the birth of the greatest performers?
Tickets are available on www.mymookh.com for 600 advance and 1000 at the gate
