Kinanda Fest 2 - 20/10/2010

The KinandaFest – 2 was held on 20th October 2010 and for the sheer fun and irreverence of it all; we dubbed it  “Shukas n Juice” …little did we know what a kerfuffle that would cause.

Kifaru Gardens was transformed into almost magical place as the audience was treated to great poetry from Ngwalitio Mawiyo, Checkmate, Wamathai, Namatsi Lukoye, Mugambi Nthiga, Danice Kingori and Wanjiku.

Atemi, Eric Wainaina, Nina Ogot, Ma3, were some of the great musicians that kept the great crowd that turned up on this sleepy Kenyatta Day  (apparently that name was changed in the new constitution…to Founders...Mashujaa Day) afternoon and kept them on their feet.

KinandaFest – 2 marked the entry of poetry into our regular programming; it is something  we intend to keep going at the festival; having recognized the power and passion with which a new young generation of Kenyan writers have embraced this art form

We were thrilled to have you and look forward to seeing you at #KinandaFest3
Enjoy the pics below.

6 hours as they watched
4 poets and
5 bands that got photographed by
8 photographers that took over
