During my recent trip back to Nairobi, Kenya over the summer holidays, I managed to convince my cousins to come with me to Pawa 254 Rooftop Sundowner event which happens every first friday of the month featuring different musical artists. I found out about this event by stumbling upon it on facebook

On this night, was Ugandan based world singer and songwriter Suzan Kerunen who not only sings in English but also in Alur-Jonam and Swahili. it was definitely one of the high points of my short trip as not only did she have a striking presence on stage but she is also a lovely person to meet.
For those who may not know what Pawa 254 is, it is a creative space where creatives can meet, network and collaborate on upcoming project. They also host an array of events from arts to music showcasing Nairobi's diverse creative community. If you live in Nairobi or just visiting, I recommend attending one of their events as I will on my future trips.
