Nairobi is enjoying a boom in the popularity of electronic dance music, and this weekend the city hosts a performance by a duo of top DJs from Ghana. 

This pan African collaboration takes place tomorrow August 26 when the visiting group Jowaa performs together with top rated Kenyan DJ Suraj at the Alchemist in Westlands.

Jowaa comprises Benjamin Lebrave (DJ Bbrave) who runs a digital record label called Akwaaba Music in Accra alongside Ghanaian music producer Gafacci.

Since 2008, Lebrave, who is of joint French and American citizenship but is based in Ghana, has played at gigs around the world including a couple of times in Nairobi.
