The much awaited Airtel Sondeka festival opened Friday night at the Elephant, on Kanjata Road, Groganville Estate. This year, the festival is running on the theme #WeAreTheOnes. Creatives (artists and innovators) are the ones championing the Creative revolution not only for wealth and job creation but also to address societal challenges.
The festival, currently in its third edition, is the brainchild of Chief Mechanic at Garage Creatives, Liz Kilili.
Uganda’s MC Slim used his voice control in variation to perform poetry, mixed with musical interludes to suit delivery of his different messages: political statements, empowerment and love.
Platinum Dance Crew from Kibera, put on a high octane dance exhibition that had MC David Mureithi jokingly claim he was Kenya’s breakdance champion, back in 1984.
Santuri Band’s Makadem had the opportunity of sharing the stage with Sonku Phiri, deejays Ay and Issak, Giovani Kiyingi and Mim Suleiman.
Bengatronics band then stole the show after being introduced by Sarabi Band, who warmed up the fans for them.
The festival continues Saturday and Sunday, at the Nairobi Arboretum.
