Bilal (full name Sayeed Bilal Oliver), famous for his single 'Soul Sista', had earlier been scheduled to perform on the 16th of June 2012 at the Carnivore Gardens, alongside Uganda's Maurice Kirya, but will now perform at Blankets and Wine on the 1st of July 2012.
In a continuing trend of musical fusion, the organizers will introduce a ‘Meet the Danes Mashup’ bringing together Benjamin Aggerbaek, Palle Klok and Louise Hoegh from Denmark and Kenya’s Juliani, Winyo and Chris Adwar in what should be an amazing collaboration.
The artistes should train for a week with a common band, working on the songs which they will perform on the day of the event. Another neo-soul musician set to feature at the 35th edition will be popular vocalist Stan.
Advance tickets are already on sale at select Dormans and Osteria outlets or online via Pesapal for Kshs. 1,300 for adults and Kshs. 500 for children. Tickets at the gate will be Kshs. 1,500.
