MUSIC ‘N’ BRAINS hosted by Creatives Garage
September 1 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pmKes.350
Music ’n’ Brains is an industry event series designed to educate musicians and music business professionals. The event aims to showcase new & unknown musical acts in a bid to celebrate the connecting power of music. You could think of it as your unofficial MBA in Music Business as it will be based entirely on the experiences of other musicians and music professionals already around us.
What we feel is missing from the Kenyan music scene, is not talent; but marketing, branding, business development, fundraising and networking opportunities. Basically, the essentials of running any successful business. Our end goal is to help musicians build sustainable businesses.
We cannot carry a tune at all, but we can lead the way to building a music business community. We hope local musicians can tap into the forum for their own knowledge. The content from each of our events will be captured in video, audio and written formats for perpetual access. The event is hosted every first Friday of the month at Creatives Garage and our inaugural event features Fena Gitu.
Fena showed up in the music scene as backup vocalist for Muthoni the Drummer Queen and Dela in 2009. Fast forward to today and we are all dancing to Fenamenal Woman, Brikicho, Sema Ng’we, Doing Her Thing Tho, and many more. Fena’s career is on the up and up, and we can’t wait to be looking back at her 20, 30, 40 year legacy.
