Sol-A-Fair

Sol Generation is what you’d reference when citing a well-built music label. Since debuting its talented signees earlier this year, the label has racked up quite an interesting and impressive catalogue that continues to exhibit the brilliance of label’s owners Sauti Sol. 

Now they’ve collaborated with K1 Flea Market to bring you the Sol-A-Fair showcase, which is an attempt at creating a brilliant musical experience for all music lovers.

Nviiri the Storyteller will headline the first installation of the showcase at K1 Klubhouse on September 15. This collaborative effort is expected to continue every Sunday until October.

It will also offer a market, games, art installations and plenty more.

Lucid Dreams brings together six Kenyan artists who engage in drawing, painting, sculpture and video. They use these to showcase how the acts and decisions involved in the making of art are made visible in the work and how they show the thinking that underpins the work.

It opened on September 11 at the Circle Art Gallery in Nairobi. Being the first group exhibition this year, it features the works of Maliza Kiasuwa, Sidney Mang’ong’o, Onyis Martin, Agnes Waruguru Njoroge, Prina Shah and Lemek Tompoika. 

The exhibition, curated by Don Handa, runs until October 11.
