Musical Fusion in Nairobi
In July, Ghetto Classics in Nairobi had the great pleasure of performing as part of a concert alongside Polish composer and producer, JIMEK. With just one week of rehearsals, students performed a variety of pieces, from movie scores to pop hits, traditional Kenyan songs, and then a series of hip hop arrangements. The performance also featured percussionist Samuel Njoroge and the Ghetto Classics dancers.
