|Performing at the June edition of #sitawaignited|
We then grabbed our wine glasses and sat back to watch a 30 min documentary on Post Election Violence titled Heal the Nation; (will have give away CDs in the next Sitawa ignited) some reactions on twitter from those in attendance.
"You may not realize it but all of us in Kenya were involved in #PEV in 1 way or another" says #SitawaIgnited audience member.

Blog post by Julie Olum on the show
Now on to some good stuff. Like, this weekend was pretty good otherwise!
I skipped over to Sitawa 'Mama Africa' Wafula's poetry event; 'Sitawa Ignited' which was definitely an eye-opening, fun start to my Saturday night. Free wine, heart-wrenching screening of a documentary, poetry, open-mic, good music and we have a winner =D The next edition is on the day after I go back to SA though. Hear my soul weep a little...
Join us for this month's event on July 21st... more pix of the night on the Facebook page
