Rhumba Afrique NightSome of you have probably come across that funny poster which features a skinny dog with the following message: ‘Dear Salary,Please come back to stay with me…You left in such a rush last month,I didn’t even have time to tell you  about my plans…I MISS YOU,I’m sorry about whatever it is I did…I promise I’ll be good…LOVE YOU…’

I know times can be tough and that all we need to get through it are a few light moments where we can let loose and be free with friends and loved ones. The Organizers of the Rhumba Afrique Night empathize with you and have seen to it that you get to enjoy the best African mixes,experience and great African sound for free…okay not totally free, the entry to the Canivore Restaurant where the event will be taking place, is though. The party kicks off at 6:00 p.m with DJs Wikki, Watti and guest DJ Johnny Sibour keeping you entertained with the very best of Rhumba music. Get this, this will take place each and every first Friday of the month.


Valentines art-kuonaOther than the obvious reason, did you ever ask yourself why February was dubbed the month of Love? I submit to you that it was given that title by virtue of the fact that when it comes to the number of days that each of twelve months was given, it was the only one to get less than 30. It even gets robbed of that one day that makes it a day shy to being equal all the other months every once in a while. So to appease the month, they decided to name it the month of love and the good book does after all say that there is nothing greater than love, hence ‘the month of love’ was born.

I hadn’t meant to come up with a conspiracy theory, it just came to mind when I saw the title accorded to February because of that one day when red becomes the new black. Now,  Kuona Trust have not been left behind and are having their first ever art affair featuring all their artists. This gives you the opportunity to get yourself, or someone special an affordable art piece they can treasure for days to come. Sealing the package will also be live music, good food,and you can also get your portrait drawn (word) among other activities. The event starts at 10:00 a.m. For more info, call +254 721 262 326. All this will take place on the 8th of February at Hurlingham.


tamamboSome live music this weekend anyone? How does the idea of the Famous Street Legend Brass Band sound to you? If it gets your heart to adopt a rhythm that is too cool to distract and gets the fingers of one of your hands snapping to a tune that only you can hear with your other hand pocketed  and your head slightly bent and tilted at a slight angle…I could go on for a while but I’d rather stop. So, as I was saying, if Jazz is your kind of music then the Tamambo Karen Blixen is the place to be from this Friday at 7:30 p.m. You can get to listen to some great jazz and blues music as well as request some songs. Enjoy happy hour prices on alcoholic beverages, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and eat some delicious bitings while you take in the ambience. Entry is free. For more info, contact: +254 719 346 349

Have a fabulous weekend and if your life seems to spin out of control remember that All Izz Well.
