45: Live Band, HipHop, Worship

45 Poster

Ever been to a show with 1001 opening acts that when it got to the main act you were tired and frustrated? Well, I have good news that will ease your pain. 45 is here. And no, I am not talking about the notorious Githurai matatu route. 45 is a premier show that involves a fusion of Hiphop, worship, jazz and afro elements without opening acts. It gives the audience a chance to listen to fresh music from ‘unsigned hype’ so to speak.


Why 45? Well, it is a 45 minute show that features Nasara The Poet accompanied by a live band and vocalists. The artist who is gearing up to drop his first solo full length album, uses the concert to give his fans a glimpse of what to expect. And trust me. 45 does more than whet our appetites for the album titled ‘Overflow’. I have seen Nasara perform, heard his music and if that is anything to go by, we are definitely in for a treat. Very few artists are as nimble with the pen and paper as he is. As if that wasn’t enough, he is a mean beat boxer too. We have featured one of Nasara’s poems on our site and just so that you can sample his work, listen to this track he did earlier this year:




See what I am talking about? It’s ok to press replay. Really, go ahead. But the real good news is that you can catch him live this Sunday the 16th of June at Parklands Baptist Church for the second offering of 45. Hosted by Nasara and Drip Drop Records, the first 45 show took place at International Christian Centre Mombasa Road on the 2nd of June. The show will run from 4 p.m. to 4:45 p.m so make sure you get there early. No African timing. And guess what. The entry is free. You can’t make this stuff up!

Oh, one last thing. For the peeps who live in Githurai, you will have the joy of using a 45 mat to go to the 45 event…. and maybe, just maybe, pay 45 shillings as fare. Such are the joys of life. *sigh*
