Bongo artiste Rayvanny and Kenya’s Willy Paul were the star attractions at a Kenyan doctor’s birthday party held last Saturday.
Dr Catherine Nyongesa Watta, one of the 22 oncologists in Kenya, was celebrating her birthday at Radisson Blu in Nairobi’s Upper Hill area.
"I love music. Music has a way of calming nerves and keeping stress at bay,” Dr Nyongesa said during the party, adding that she asked to have the artistes grace the celebrations because she listens to hits by African artistes.
The two entertained guests with renditions of their hit songs, with Rayvanny’s Tetema being the major highlight.
Both Rayvanny and Willy Paul congratulated the doctor and wished her a long life.
ASH: The therapeutic music experience
Music soothes the soul, mends a broken heart and excites; it inspires, it motivates and moves.
That’s why Emmy nominated artistes Sara Mitaru - Kimanthi and music producer David “King David” Muthami created ASH - an Acoustic Songwriters Hub.
It is the first of its kind, where songwriters come together and follow a simple format where each artiste sings an Angry song, a Sad song and a Happy song.
The event has been running successfully for over a year with monthly shows each with a different theme.
The uniqueness of the show is in music experience that mixes genres of music as the audience sits quietly to listen each time.
This month's 'therapy session' was held over the weekend at Sax & Violins Lounge, The Waterfront Mall, Karen, in partnership with Ciroc Vodka.
