Kinanda Fest 9 (Tumehama Edition)- The Acts

A Sneak Peak on what to expect

Asali(Swahili word for honey, honey that enlightens by bringing to light all that is in the dark.)This is the definition of the multi talented musician Melissa.Her music marries a fusion of Afro jazz and spoken word poetry.She is a voice of the voiceless-as manifested in her single "Red Roses" from the album "Baba Speaks" 
Her poetry traverses the linguistic borders of both English and Swahili.

James Quest Photography
While on the production crew of a music television show, James got into pictures out of pure curiosity. Before he knew it, he loved photography and was getting paid for it. In a relatively short amount of time, James Quest has earned the trust and respect of top brands, creative agencies and photographers alike.
Anything worth being done is worth doing with passion. James Quest’s work is all over the African continent, and around the World. His work with cameras has allowed him the honor to work with many clients the world over, from East Africa to Congo, South Africa, the Middle East, the Americas, Canada, and New Zealand, just to name a few.

Some his great photography
