MOTOWN IN NAIROBI
A night of fun and music full of dancing and singing along to music from Motown
The first edition of Motown in Nairobi was held in June 2013. It premiered at the Village Market and was, in a word, successful. Over 450 people danced and sang along for 3 hours to music from the good old days. From the costumes, the wigs, the horn section, and the full band you were transported right back to the 1960s and taken on a musical journey of a lifetime. We deliver nostalgia with excellence! Since then, we’ve produced 7 editions of the production, each with its own success, each growing the Motown audience larger than the previous year!
Motown in Nairobi prides itself in always featuring a variety of vocalists in each edition, carefully selected based on vocal prowess and stage performance. In the past, we have had Denise Gordon, Chris Bittok, Mercy Myra, Edward Parseen, Patricia Kihoro, Ian Mbugua, Maia von Lekow, Alisha Popat, Kendi Nkonge, Victor Muli, David Hunter, Neema Ntalel (Silayio), June Gachui, Noel Nderitu, Kaz and Dela Maranga. We have also featured masterly instrumentalists including The Nairobi Horn Project, Aaron Rimbui, Eddie Grey, Chris Bittok, Jacob Asiyo, Edward Parseen among others.
We have also had the talented Art in Motion pepper the musical performances with steps and moves which makes the show ever so vibrant
