Kipekee is a regular music and poetry concert celebrating outstanding artistes and artists with a body of authentic, original work. It aims to set itself apart as a premier stage for carefully selected acts ensuring rich and unique entertainment experiences.

The first edition will feature:

  • Serro
  • Socratess
  • Sage
Multi-instrumentalist, Serro is becoming a sought-after artist that has graced many stages in the last couple of years.

There’s more delight to find in Hulda Serro than her crater-deep dimples. Her voice has been well-likened to chocolate-coated raindrops soothing, alluring and sweet. She has music spanning several genres and topics, but is best of all known for her recent single “Rongai” in which she decries the pain of having a cheating partner. A multi-instrumentalist, Serro is becoming a sought-after artist that has graced many stages in the last couple of years.

Serro’s sultry magic will be matched well by Socratess’s impassioned poetry. Socratess was a runner-up at the 2016 Slam Africa poetry festival. She has fierce stage presence as she covers a wide variety of topics, from family to love but focuses mostly on women empowerment. You will listen when Tess speaks.

Tess can trace back her poetry to growing up and finding her mother’s poems strewn in various places in the house. At 11, she began to work on verses of her own to express what she was feeling. You can see some very personal experiences so eloquently described in her poetry, which she hopes will alter perspectives in the woman’s place in society and in every sphere of life.

Sage Chemutai, African diva with a deep and alluring voice

Finally, Sage Chemutai’s deep and alluring voice, which you might know from her first single So Alive featuring Octopizzo, will be the third act to watch at Kipekee. She began singing in church at five, and has grown as a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist.

Since breaking out on her own in 2011, she has released another single, Maskini, and has collaborated with many other artists. Her sound is aptly described as being a soulful fusion of everything musical, and she doesn’t shy away from showing real emotions through her songs.

It will be going down at the Michael Joseph Center on Friday the 8th from 6.30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Snacks and drinks will be provided too. Start your Friday night there.
