Kenyan ensemble Sauti Sol will headline the Kenyan lineup for the second edition of the Stanbic Yetu Festival.
The band, who recently performed at the Forbes 30 under 30 summit held in Gaborone, Botswana, will sample music from their award-winning albums which are loved in Kenya and across the continent.
The ensemble recently announced that they will be going on an indefinite hiatus as they each pursue other projects, so this might be the only opportunity to see them perform together for a long time.
“We are excited to have Sauti Sol perform at the upcoming 2nd Edition of the Stanbic Yetu Festival, they will most definitely help create a soulful and unforgettable musical experience for Kenyans and beyond,” said Lilian Onyach, Head Consumer and High-Net Worth and Ag. Head of Brand and Marketing.
The event is set to take place on June 10, at the Uhuru Gardens. Speaking about the location’s significance she said, “Uhuru Gardens, which is the event location, was a well thought out and deliberate choice for us as it aligns with our purpose which is ‘Kenya is our Home, we drive her Growth’. Therefore, we want everyone to come to enjoy the music, acknowledge Kenya’s successes, and appreciate our Kenyan heritage.”
She further added that attendees will have the opportunity to get a glimpse of the transformed grounds.
“As we know, Uhuru Gardens was officially declared a National Monument in 1966 and is undergoing a massive transformation. The monuments and museum are not yet open to the public, however, Stanbic Yetu Festival audiences will get a slight glimpse of the magnificent grounds.”
The festival will also feature some of the best Kenyan DJs including DJ G-Money (Conrad Gray), DJ Forro (Andrew Waititu), Dj Shaky (Allan Wainaina), DJ Grauchi (Zacchaeus Ngani), CNG (Charles Githumbi) and DJ Cream ( Derrick Kamau).
