Power and Beauty of Women

The 5th annual Sawa Sawa Festival will be different and better this year. Just like the theme: the Power and Beauty of Women the festival aims at involve the public in a positive way in bid of celebrating femininity across borders.

For the lineup Sawa Sawa has booked Congolese maestro Fally Ipupa and Kenyan gospel sensation Daddy Owen for the Saturday evening.

Sauti Sol will headline the Sunday day Family Fun Day concert next to The Villagers and a collective of young upcoming female vocalists of Kenya including Neema, Dela, Fenna, Susan of Gogo Simo and Amelina of TPF(all girl group), who only came together for this occasion.

During both days the Sarakasi All Stars (dancers and acrobats) will be at hand to spice up the festival.

Sarakasi Trust “Sarakasi” (Kiswahili for Circus or Acrobatics) was established in late 2001 in response to the need for further development and growth in the cultural and performing arts sector initiated the concept of the Sawa Sawa Festival in 2002 to create a Festival with a Kenyan and African identity appealing to the Kenyan public at large, creating an opportunity to reach out to different communities with different economical back grounds.

At the same time, during the festival period, the (performing) arts are promoted through workshops; meet the artist sessions, technical and educational skill sharing workshops and community building (theme) activities.

The week-end concerts, to be staged at the Carnivore Grounds, will feature the ‘main’ concert stage, a (cultural) vending area, food and beverage area, an info market and child activities.

The lineup and programming will be (as much as possible) focused on female talent and will be done in such a way that it will cut across audiences of different communities, age, gender, economies and cultures. On Saturday evening the programming will be geared towards the youth and on Sunday day families will be our focus.

As always, much fun, educative topics and activities for everyone throughout the festival will be guaranteed as well as a safe and secure environment.

The week preceding the festival will be filled with workshops at the Sarakasi Dome in Ngara on different topics pertaining women.
