Karun's Guide to Nairobi

Karun is regular to the music scene in Nairobi and stands centre stage amongst the new wave of artists coming out of the city right now. Being part of the ESP. line-up this year - who are touring in London, Manchester and Liverpool this week - Karun has been able to bring her music to new places and with new people. Nairobi's fast-paced, frenzied nature has been one of the defining roots of her sound and she continues to draw inspiration from this bustling city that moves to its own beat. Scroll down for her favourite spots in Nairobi...

Pallet Cafe

"It's a super cute Vegan-friendly and child-friendly cafe that has an all-deaf waiting staff. They also sometimes have a market of all sorts of Kenyan made crafts."

K1 Klub House

"Especially when they have the flea market, or on Wednesday evenings when they have the ‘Speaker Box’. Speaker Box is a series of live acoustic music performances curated by Patricia Kihoro. (Check out her socials, she has great taste in music and always find the best underground indie/folk/jazz Kenyan artists to play.)"

The Collective Restaurant

"I like this restaurant because she always has some dope Kenyan art on display and for sale (Painters, Photographers, mixed media) and live acoustic music on Saturdays."

Oloolua Forest

"Beautiful trails!"

Sigiria - Karura Forest

"Or this one, depending on what’s closest. Also great trails. (Also Tip, there are multiple entrances to Karura, find the lesser-known ones for a more peaceful time.)"
