Nairobi - Ricky na Marafiki are back with yet another installment of their Afro Jazz ‘throwback’ concerts dubbed An Evening Of Afro Jazz: Legend's Edition.
The show has grown to become one of the few must attend Jazz events in Nairobi featuring Kenyan Jazz Legends from the golden age of Kenyan music.
This time Ricky brings to the stage the great Them Mushrooms band, one of the most successful bands to come out of the Kenyan music scene. With hits like “Za Kale Zipo” and “Wazee Wakatike”, Them Mushrooms are quite simply a must watch act.
Joining them on stage will be Kwame Rigii, who has been dubbed Cupids chanteur due to his vibrato, which can only be referred to as the stuff of legend.
He has a similar style to that of Harry Kimani, with a type of Kikuyu based soul/ jazzy feel to his music.
The show will be held at the Alliance Françoise from 6pm to 9pm this coming Friday the 5th. Advance tickets can be purchased f0r 800ksh with gate tickets going for 1000ksh.
