Kisumu Peace Festival: Makadem & Winyo

Makadem & Winyo were in Kisumu over the weekend where they performed at the inaugural Kisumu Peace Festival. Despite the less than adequate technical provisions made by the festival organisers(poor sound and PA equipment), the two Ketebul Music artists still gave their best performances judging from the positive reception they received from the tough Kisumu audience who have been known to throw performers off the stage.

Winyo took to the stage on Thursday during the official opening ceremony of the festival which was officiated by the Prime Minister of Kenya R.H Raila Amolo Odinga. His performance of some of the songs off his soon to be released Benga Blues CD, drew three encores from the audience.

Makadem was the closing act on the second day of the three day festival. The Ohanglaman was true to his charismatic and energetic style and had the massive crowd in attendance locked to his every word and step as he unleashed his ‘Anglo Ohangla’ on stage.
