Start 2012 with Kenyan music

“Kamatana” is a musical duo from Kenya who will be playing at International House Davis on Tuesday, Jan. 3, at 7 p.m.

“Dominic Ogari and Samwel Osieko will share the traditions and sounds of Kenya with you as they bring the rousing folk music of East Africa across the Atlantic,” said Elisabeth Sherwin, executive director. “The obokano is their musical instrument of choice which is rarely heard by Westerners. Its buzzing bass tone propels each song while the duo’s melodic singing floats on top of the rhythm.”

The suggested donation is $10. International House is located at 10 College Park in Davis.

“What a great way to start off the New Year,” added Sherwin. “Enjoy this unique and wonderful music by Kamatana!”
