For the first two weeks of February Anna and I visited her parents who now live in Nairobi, Kenya. As part of this amazing trip to Africa I had the opportunity to play a little show at The Kijiji Cafe on the campus of Africa International University.
It was a wonderful afternoon. I really wasn't sure how many (if any) people would show up, after all none of them will have had any idea who I was. However Anna’s mum and dad, along with the management of Kijiji, did a brilliant job of promoting the event and lucky I didn't play to an empty room.
I hadn't practiced or played for a few weeks due to poor health, so I was a little nervous about how it was going to go. The audience was loverly and very welcoming and encouraging. It was a real honour to have the opportunity to share my music on another continent and in a different culture. Hopefully I’ll be back to play there again one day!
