People Who Are Addicted To Music
The skies held up for the 44th edition of Blankets and Wine held at the Carnivore grounds on Sunday afternoon. The blazing sun ensured that legs were on display as guests dressed to the minimum in shorts, micro-shorts, mini-sundresses and maxi-dresses.
For the very first time, the event hosted a craft fair where Kenyan artists and designers showcased their crafts. Furthermore, B&W went green to commemorate the World Environment Day. Under their slogan ‘Think.Eat.Save’, the event organisers ensured that the grounds were litter free.
First to perform was fresh talent Prisca Ojwang’. She has a soft melodious voice that is soothing to the ears. She gave a sterling performance for a first timer act. She was soon followed by US-based Sudanese singer Alsarah whose ethno-urban flavour got the crowd to its feet. Dela, who is not new to the B&W stage, performed some of her new music from her upcoming album and she did not disappoint.
The highly anticipated main act 2013 double South Africa Music Award (SAMA) winner Zahara stepped on stage to a thunderous applause.
Born Bulelwa Mkutukana, she performed some of her chart topping singles including Loliwe and Lengoma much to the absolute delight of the crowd that sang along word for word.
It was by far one of the legendary performances so far.
