Live music at the Carnivore this weekend

This sounds fun - two evenings of live music in Nairobi for Ksh1500. Sawa Sawa 2011 runs over  Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May. Next Wednesday, June 1st, is Madaraka Day, commemorating Jomo Kenyatta becoming the country's first prime minister. Madaraka Day is a public holiday and a lot of people will no doubt be taking off the last two days of May – Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st – as well.

The theme for this year's Sawa Sawa, the fifth festival, celebrates the Power and Beauty of Women with a largely female line-up – and there are workshops and other activities and a family-friendly, "safe and secure" environment.

Sounds like an early Womad -
