Madaraka Festival 2015 says
One Vibe Africa and EMP Museum present the 2nd Annual Madaraka Festival, a night of music and purpose. Madaraka Festival is a creative collaboration among Seattle artists in support of One Vibe Africa’s Music and Art Program, based in Kisumu, Kenya.

Now more than ever, youth in Kenya are in need of the artistic encouragement and experiences offered by One Vibe Africa. Madaraka Festival provides the resources for these vital artistic exchanges. Hundreds of youth are now participating in One Vibe Africa’s programs in Kenya as a direct result of the collaboration between Seattle artists involved in Madaraka Festival.

Performing Artists:

Don’t miss spectacular musical performances by Owuor Arunga (One Vibe's Global Ambassador, Madaraka Festival Musical Director, and trumpeter for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis), Blitz the Ambassador, Sauti Sol, M1 of DeadPrez, among other renown artists from Seattle and Africa.

Art Show:

Madaraka Festival art show features original work by students and teachers from Kisumu, and select pieces from Pacific Northwest artists. The artwork will be by the entrance to the Sky Church.

The successful 2014 festival initiated international cultural exchange between Kenya, and Seattle while achieving unanticipated benefits, including:

• Inspired creative collaboration between Africans and African-Americans in Seattle.
• Showcased the best African oriented concert dubbed: “ a night to remember” by Northwest Music Scene, “a premier African-influenced festival” by YES Magazine, and “globally oriented event” by Humanosphere.

Madaraka is an all ages event.
