“Music Is Our Weapon” Premiers February 26th

The lives we lead are full of truths, realities, and lies that are never exposed; we find comfort in good thoughts especially during bad times.

The interesting thing is; not everyone likes the thought of only wishing they had it all or so long as I’m okay then it’s all fine, some just want ENOUGH in a just society, pretending that all is okay is the most dangerous thing to mankind.

How many of us are revolutionary minded?

The Sarabi Band has been around for a while now and their kind of music is unique on its own. The Kenyan band members have taken it upon themselves to speak in one voice, their music is an expression of reality, defiance and love.

The socially conscious band’s music advocates for human dignity and brotherhood, in Kenya just like many African states, injustices are brought upon its citizens mostly because of politics; the politicians are loved despite their twisted agenda. Sarabi Band’s music which is a fusion of Afrofusion, African rock and a taste of reggae with deep poetry tries to rectify these flaws.

The electrifying band has managed to appeal to all manner of audience from different cultures through their powerful music. The band has performed at various international stages including: The Sauti Za Busara Festival in Zanzibar, Africa Oye Festival in Liverpool (England), Roskilde Festival in Denmark, and WOMEX (World Music Expo) in Hungary.

Sarabi is now telling the story of its own struggle in a documentary titled “Music Is Our Weapon‬”. The film directed and written by Nigerian-born Taye Balogun-also the founder of Storytellers-explores the history of the outfit, their philosophy and their resolute fight against injustice.

“Music Is Our Weapon‬” features: Sarabi, Jacquey Nyaminde(Actor), Boniface Mwangi, Abdi Rashid Jibril

The film premiers on February 26, 2016 at Century Cinemax at The Junction Mall in Nairobi.
