The international community in Nairobi came together in October at “A Note for a Smile: Art & Music for Gaza.” The event raised funds to support health institutions in Gaza that serve those injured during the Israeli occupation last summer.
East African visual artists showcased their work in an art auction. Live musical performances included: Afro-Simba (Mijikenda Fusion); Teto (Maasai Folk); Jahm (Philippino Reggae); Mutinda (Folk) and Idd Aziz (Afro-Fusion). The Designer’s Fair showcased the work of local artisans. My personal highlght of the evening was connecting with a brother form another mother – Teto. I copped his CD that night and haven’t stopped listening to it since – check out his music here.
