Jazz,love,peace,fashion.

Hallo Loves.

I couldn’t think of a better way to start this week than on a pure, peaceful outfit and attitude.

This past week was quite an interesting one. I experienced two days of awesomeness from the STORY OF MY LIFE concert by Adawnage Band which just lacked words to describe; I’m still looking for the perfect word. It’s amazing how God loves us and how just spending quality time in His presence goes a long way in making our lives much easier. Someone once said that if you enter His presence with praise, He will enter your situation with power. In short, trust God :-).

Still on the subject of music, hands up for all Jazz lovers. It is said that Jazz music had an influence on fashion in the 1920’s. History has it  that during the racial segregation era, Jazz performers discovered the power of dress as a visual tool used to defy mainstream societal constructs, shaping a new fashion and style aesthetic.

Fast forward to 2015 and Jazz still plays a major role in fashion. Though not so many bands in Kenya play Jazz, I bet you guys have heard of Ricky na Marafiki. YES! It is one of the coolest Afro-Jazz bands in East Africa. I was privileged to meet Ricky (the founder of this great band) at Adawnage Band’s event and I got an autographed copy of their sophomore album So Simple’ (which I’m actually listening to as I write this post). My favorite track in the album is All, but you need to listen to Dufa Mpararo; it brings back childhood memories.

One of these days, if you’re looking for an evening of mature, settled music that is fully aware of its purpose in life, make a point of going to the Alliance Francaise every last Tuesday of the month for some Afro Jazz music and while at it, grab a copy of Ricky na Marafiki’s album. You’ll thank me later.

Anyway, I hope you guys have a peaceful week.

Love, love and more love.
